Jack Laver (b.1998) is a London based multimedia artist and musician. His experiments with ink, adhesive and resin, investigate dependency and dissonance through material passage. Networks of bleeding lines and biomorphic complexity, cling together in positions of unforeseeable intricacy. Laver’s works simultaneously maintain their ambiguity, whilst familiarity continually resurfaces in the spatial logic of their abstract assemblages. These vast surfaces, at times, share a resemblance to action painting, or aerial landscape photography, yet retain their sculptural, fluid presence. What we are offered comes from conditions that are far less concerned with human centered agencies, and retreat from means of categorisation.The works stand in recognition of materials, a reliance on their performance, as oscillating forms resonate with veins, roots, weather systems, or avenues of fractured river systems that cut through the landscape. Even wider geological bodies of material discourse can be identified. A bridge to that which withdraws from access, hidden by subterranean depths, or the limited perception we gain from our momentary blip of existence. Laver offers nonlinear structures of contemplation that speak to the physical realities of nature.
