HOLLOW EARTH - EXHIBITION NOW SHOWING

My exhibition feat original Music by Blanck Mass is now showing @ The KK Outlet. 
For more details on the work on show, trailer and info below.








HOLLOW EARTH
ALEX TURVEY
AN EXHIBITION FEATURING ORIGINAL MUSIC BY BLANCK MASS
PRIVATE VIEW: THURSDAY 3 MAY, 6 - 9PM
EXHIBITION RUNS: 4 – 27 MAY
KK Outlet are proud to announce the first solo show of artist Alex Turvey.
Recently hailed as one of Fashion’s New Generation by Vogue, as well as one of the fifteen Creatives Who Will Define The Future of British Arts by The Independent, Turvey’s work takes his audience to a surreal and psychedelic other world. Whether through his design or moving image he creates a dark, abstract work that draws in and hypnotizes the viewer.
For Hollow Earth, Turvey has developed a series of psychedelic moving image pieces which began life as a visual journey created to accompany the live performances of Blanck Mass; the solo project of Benjamin John Power.
The jarring and hypnotic sequences utilise CGI techniques to create a surreal journey which mimicks the gestation of an alien life, from a small metallic stone into a contorted entity that then travels over kaleidoscopic, volcanic landscapes.
The birth of the ‘growth’ originated entirely as an instinctive visual response to the beautiful complexity of Blanck Mass’s soundscapes. There was never a predetermined style for the visuals and each stage was unplanned, allowing the form to be molded by an instinctive programme in response to sound, rather than as part of an overt design master plan.
A combination of hyper real CGI and vividly manipulated archive footage of the natural world was
combined to create a jarring juxtaposition between ancient and alien imagery, presented across a sequence of hypnotic absorbing vignettes.
The sequences exhibited will be displayed in immersive 3D format, accompanied by original
soundscapes created by Blanck Mass especially for the exhibition.
This series in the first chapter of visuals which Turvey plans develop as the Blanck Mass live set grows. The second chapter will take on an entirely different style & approach, which will include a live action short Sci Fi film.

DECEMBER UPDATES - BLANCK MASS LIVE VISUALS / WE HAVE BAND MUSIC PROMO / BLINK WIN PRODUCTION COMPANY OF THE YEAR!

Hello and Happy Christmas, its been a crazy end to the year so heres a little of what I've been up to.

I wrapped up the year with a 60 minute live visual sequence for the incredible Blanck Mass debut at the Shacklewell Arms on Monday. It was a very special night for all who attended and I’m so proud to have had this epic labour of love so warmly received.

Below are a few stills of the gestation inspired visual journey I’ve been creating for the show over the past couple of months. I will be releasing a teaser clip of the visuals in the New Year but to experience the full set in all its glory you will have to join us at the next Blanck Mass show. Big thanks to Simone Ghilardotti & Felip Docolomansky for their incredible 3D assistance.

In other news I am adding the finishing touches to the new promo for We Have Band. Set for release in January the video for 'Where Are Your People' was one of my wildest shoots to date, I’m not going to give a thing away so keep those peepers peeled for the videos debut in the new year.

Finally massive congratulations to Blink for winning Production Company of The Year. I’m so proud to be represented by such an incredible company and to be working alongside so many directors, artists and producers I respect and admire.

Have an amazing christmas and very happy new year.
I’m off for a snowball x
