Rob & Nick Carter, Transforming Series at Masterpiece London Art Fair

Celebrated British artists Rob and Nick Carter will be exhibiting all twelve artworks from their acclaimed Transforming series, together for the very first time, at Masterpiece London 2018, from 28 June – 4 July.

The husband and wife artistic duo will present a mesmerising body of work consisting of 12 slow-moving, looped films each taking as their starting point an iconic painting, drawing or photograph. In this series Old Master works are brought to life through digital animation. Using figures such as Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder, Jacob van Ruisdael and John Constable as a reference, the Carters’ aim to re-engage with such works and create a unique intersection between art of the past and cutting edge computer-generated imagery.

The works range in duration from 30 minutes to 3 hours, and as the films move and develop over time, the viewer is invited to notice subtle changes, with occasional real-time activity bringing the works to life.
