Artist Statement (en Anglais)

Process is at the core of Jack Tanner's practice, creating highly structured and carefully rendered artworks composed from a system of thought. The mathematically informed discoveries are realised and then revealed through an abstract visual dialogue that commonly takes inspiration from the characteristics of the systematic geometry present within nature.  Through the use of various materials, Tanner creates the optical explorations which combine both the movement of physical form and colour. It was in 2012 after being given a bag of re-purposed screws that Tanner realised the potential of using screws as a primary medium for his work.

Viewing his practice as a journey, a new generation of ideas are conceived through the act of making and drawing. Tanner's previous works, along with numerous working drawings are the story behind the fabrication of future constructions. Using the act of making as a form of discovery illustrates the importance of working manually, rejecting the notion of mechanical procedures. Throughout the production process the manual execution of each bespoke, hand-made piece allows for enough time to gain the key knowledge required to inform future pieces.

Often sitting between two and three-dimensional forms, the constructions frequently enforce an active response from the viewer, with perception being a focal point of the inquiries pursued.
