Philip Cheater

Test Bed | 19 April 2014 - 18 June 2014

The fabric of society is a complex web of communication and physical encounters, information and instruction - a matrix infiltrated and managed by signs and symbols of health and safety culture. It is with the semiotics of safety, its language of vibrant geometric forms and luminous graphics, and our responses, that Philip Cheater’s practice is most concerned.

Cheater draws on the physical response to and effect of colour and pattern. He masks surfaces in tape until they pulsate, to the point where shifting optical illusions distort, overpower and frustrate the viewer’s encounter with form.

Having graduated from Swansea Metropolitan University in 2011 Philip Cheater has since produced work for LOCWS International 2013 and is currently developing work for Colony Projects and Elysium Gallery’s From Here and There, an exchange between artists in Wales and Colorado.
