Cameron Morgan and Jason Pyper Davis are back in our studios for the second block of TV Classics Part 1, one of this year’s Unlimited commissions. From September to December 2015, the artist and tutor researched, prepped and worked on five large paintings representing a classic TV show from five decades of television: 1930’s to 1970’s.
Today, they are starting work on the 1980’s TV Classic: the A-Team! Working chronologically, Cameron aims to produce a new painting per decade up to the 2010’s. “It’s funny how it changes: the TVs used to be beautiful and original, and the shows were black and white. Now that I’ve started with the technicolour shows, the TVs are becoming less and less interesting. Nowadays they all look the same!”
The paintings will then be exhibited in our Project Room Gallery for Glasgow International, and will tour to Wales and England (Southbank Centre) during the year.
Cameron’s work is being documented by our Media Unit, and will appear on a new website dedicated to the project, which will launch in March. In the meantime, keep an eye on the website for some snippets!
