Published In: United Kingdom, 01 January 2008
In 2005 British visual artist Martin Westwood reviews his most notable projects to date, from his early drawings, in which he painstakingly reproduces images distorted through the processof photocopying, to his three exhibitions at The Approach in London; sequences of images allow the reader an overviewof his two major installations, 'Angelus Novus' and 'fatfinger [HAITCH . KAI . EKS.]', in which he recreated a school nursery and an office space, respectively, as a way of exploring issues around the environments we grow up and work in. An essay by writer and lecturer JJ Charlesworth provides a deeper understanding of the artist's work as a whole. Designed by Jason Beard, the book is an extensive and up-to-date visual summary of Westwood's oeuvre.Martin Westwood's projects investigate the state of contemporary capitalist society, with a recurring focus on themes of bureaucracy, commerce, economy and corporate culture. Creating complex systems of codes and symbols that incorporate and reference familiar objects - such as balloons, magazines, map pins and invoice sheets, artificially decomposed and then reconstructed - his art works vary in scale and format from large- scale installations to paintings and multi-layered collages.
