Julian Mayor | Distortional Rhythm

by Britta Cameron

Julian Mayor’s artwork is inspired by digital technology and traditional welding techniques, which synergize and result in beautiful, unique, and creative artwork. This collection consists of pieces made exclusively for THE NEW, Twentieth gallery’s newest exhibition space. Mayor has created standing and hanging light sculptures, large wall hangings, and many more pieces.

His artistic process is innovative in that he first designs the pieces digitally online and then hand wields the material. In these pieces, the weld seams are left unfinished which allows the viewer to have a first hand look at the craft of welding. He is inspired by the infinite possibilities with using technology, but also the simplicity and individualism that comes with hand-made items. The owner and curator of Twentieth and THE NEW, Stefan Lawrence stated that, “Discovering Julian and bringing his work to the States for the first time was truly exciting. With this latest exhibition we will debut a number of new creations. I am thrilled about the collection that was conceived of and look forward to presenting the inspiring work that Julian has created.”

Excited about the exhibition, Mayor said, “The inspiration for this exhibition is all about colors, lines and reflection. I worked closely with Stefan to develop this exciting new work and he encouraged me to think big and to be courageous with my design decisions, resulting in work that has not been seen anywhere else before.”
