Irish graffiti artist Maser is currently showing his first solo exhibition entitled Orbiting on the Periphery at Lazarides Rathbone in London. The exhibition continues Maser’s exploration into the philosopher and mathematician Thales of Miletus’s theory – “mens sana in corpore sano,” in which the physical health and condition are recognised as an essential part of psychological equilibrium. With the strong use of bold graphic and geometric elements, loose brush strokes and relief work, the new paintings focuses on Masers’s interest in duality and the thought-provoking relationship between the physical and psychological.
Combining his graffiti experience with his formal art education, Maser has developed a singular body of work, balancing hard-edged blocks of neon colour that congeal into expressive, figurative compositions. The show runs until the 5th of May.
