Alastair LevyBack to Artists
Alastair Levy is a British artist and received his MA from the Royal College of Art in 2008. Over recent years he has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally and his work is held in a number of collections including the Zabludowicz Collection at 176 Gallery in London. Recent shows include In the Light of the Overhead, Post Box Gallery, London (2012) [curated]; Circa 1960, Guest Projects, London (2012) and The Geometry of the Object Being Plated, Trove, Birmingham (2011).
Levy has a diverse practice which incorporates a broad range of media and a variety of approaches to making. His primary source materials include office stationery, hardware products and traditional fine art supplies and he uses these to develop gesture as a kind of language in which each divergent act begins to form part of a progressively more coherent whole. He is increasingly concerned with the idea of the artwork as being both a thing to be looked at or experienced as well as a document of a process or performance.
Levy lives and works in London.
