Metall-FX known for creative metal coatings for both interior and
exterior surfaces draws on new technology to produce liquid metal
sculptural paintings and 3D sculptures.
Metall-FX founder Brian Eatwell has been working with liquid metal since
the mid-nineties. Having had numerous commercial commissions over the
years, Eatwell's creative vision, influence, inspiration and support sees
Metall-FX move into the world of art, which began with a Residency
Programme this summer.
Essentially a retreat where artists were able to focus without distraction,
and work in their creative genres responding to nature and the elements,
drawing on new technology and liquid metal to produce sculptural
paintings and metal sculptures.
Metall-FX Artists in Residence Krzysztof Krzysztof and Jane Renwick
created a series of conceptual pieces using different substrates such as
glass, metal, resin, stone, silicone, terracotta and wood, developing
dynamic works of organic abstraction, nature and realism incorporating
liquid metal technology. Krzysztof explains: “Two mediums come together
and there are no limitations. It’s like fusing engineering with poetry.”
A small group of acclaimed artists and sculptors were invited to join
Metall-FX on the Liquid Metal Technology Residency Programme, which
was held in Krzysztof’s native Poland. Artists and artisans included
leading violin maker Ryszard Florek, Dominika Griesgraber-Lievore whose
work is on permanent display around the globe, surrealist Marcin
Zalewski, Janusz Jedrzejowski who sculpts in wood, stone and ceramics.
Also sculptor, painter and photographer Mariusz Wolny, along with Wit
Boguslawski whose vast paintings are on display in both public and private
collections, sculptor and painter Antoni Walerych, talented rising star
Malgorzata Lojko and the award winning Internationally renowned sculptor
Best pieces from the Residency and other commissioned works will be on
exhibit at Gallery Different this autumn.
