Metall-FX known for creative metal coatings for both interior and exterior surfaces draws on new technology to produce liquid metal sculptural paintings and 3D sculptures. Metall-FX founder Brian Eatwell has been working with liquid metal since the mid-nineties. Having had numerous commercial commissions over the years, Eatwell’s creative vision, influence, inspiration and support sees Metall-FX move into the world of art, which began with a Residency Programme this summer.
Essentially a retreat where artists were able to focus without distraction, and work in their creative genres responding to nature and the elements, drawing on new technology and liquid metal to produce sculptural paintings and metal sculptures.??Metall-FX Artists in Residence Krzysztof Krzysztof and Jane Renwick created a series of conceptual pieces using different substrates such as glass, metal, resin, stone, silicone, terracotta and wood, developing dynamic works of organic abstraction, nature and realism incorporating liquid metal technology. Krzysztof commented: “Two mediums come together and there are no limitations. It’s like fusing engineering with poetry.”??A small group of acclaimed artists and sculptors were invited to join Metall-FX on the Liquid Metal Technology Residency Programme, which was held in Krzysztof’s native Poland. Artists and artisans included leading violin maker Ryszard Florek, Dominika Griesgraber-Lievore whose work is on permanent display around the globe, surrealist Marcin Zalewski, Janusz Jedrzejowski who sculpts in wood, stone and ceramics. Sculptor, painter and photographer Mariusz Wolny, along with Wit Boguslawski whose vast paintings are on display in both public and private collections, sculptor and painter Antoni Walerych, talented rising star Malgorzata Lojko and the award winning Internationally renowned sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof.
Best pieces from the Residency and other commissioned works will be on exhibit at Gallery Different this autumn.
