About

The London based artist Stanza was over looked in the age of the Young British Artists when he too was educated at Goldsmiths Art College in the 1980's. He continued his education at St Martins and then returned to Goldsmiths as an AHRC arts research fellow. He is now gaining international recognition. He has exhibited worldwide for over 30 years and this selection of paintings, offered for sale for the first time, offers an opportunity to acquire a stunning artwork by a practising contemporary artist. His exhibitions and awards are too numerous to mention but in 2017 he exhibited in Poland, Norway, Italy, London, Brighton, Dundee and Liverpool and these paintings give a flavour of his painting and image based practice which shows his interest in the landscape, city and surveillance. This is a stunning large oil on canvas and it is titled A Major Incident. Stanza (b 1962) is an internationally recognised artist, who has been exhibiting worldwide since 1984. His artworks have won twenty international art prizes and art awards including:- Vidalife 6.0 First Prize Spain. SeNef Grand Prix Korea. Videobrasil First Prize Brazil. Cynet Art First Prize Germany. Share First Prize Winner Italy: Stanzas art has also been rewarded with a prestigious Nesta Dreamtime Award, an Arts Humanities Creative Fellowship and a Clarks bursary. Numerous commissions include work for Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Watermans Art Centre, FACT, and the Open Data Institute. His artworks have been exhibited with over one hundred exhibitions globally. Participating venues have included :- Venice Biennale: Victoria Albert Museum: Tate Britain: Mundo Urbano Madrid: Bruges Museum: TSSK Norway: State Museum, Novorsibirsk: Biennale of Sydney: Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo Mexico: Plymouth Arts Centre: ICA London: Sao Paulo Biennale: De Markten Brussels: Transport Museum London: QUAD Derby: Ars Nova Museum Finland. Stanza artworks since the mid eighties have focused on the participatory system the 'city' that frames questions within his work opening up conversations about the politics of space. He creates investigations about the construction of space, the environment, and landscapes you cannot see. Selected artwork monitor the behaviours, activities, and changing information, of the world around us often using networked devices and information across the internet. This can include observation by means of custom made sensors, networked cameras and computers. Stanza reforms this information and data creating what he calls parallel realities. Recurring themes throughout his career include the urban landscape, surveillance culture, privacy and the real time city. Stanza is interested in the patterns we leave behind as well real time networked events that can be re-imagined and sourced for information. He uses multiple new technologies to create distances between real time multi point perspectives that emphasize a new visual space. The purpose of this is to communicate feelings and emotions that we encounter daily which impact on our lives and which are outside our control. The results can be aesthetically beautiful maps of data or information such as personal interests, beliefs, and large scale installations representing weather, environmental, pollution and traffic data. In many artworks Stanza presents the city as a control system and various art projects have been made using live real time environmental data, surveillance and security data, news and real time information systems and fit into the area now defined as the Internet of things. The artworks 'The Emergent City' , 'Sonicity', 'Urban Generation', 'The Nemesis Machine' reform data, working with the idea of bringing data from outside into the inside, and then presenting it back out again in open ended systems where the public is often engaged in or directly embedded in the artwork. These artworks focus on the now, the ever present moment of the world we live in. Since its inception Stanza has pioneered the use of the internet for artwork creating artworks that use the protocols of the internet to inform the aesthetic structures and content of the resulting works. Educated in art at Goldsmiths College in the early eighties he later went on to study at Greenwich University and Central Saint Martins Art College London. Stanza returned to Goldsmiths College as a AHRC arts research fellow. Stanza is an independent practising artist. His mediums include; netart, paintings, videos, installations, software systems and public artworks.
