PEER

PEER logo

PEER was established in 1999 as an independent arts organisation to commission imaginative and ambitious arts projects by international and local artists in the heart of east London. PEER’s distinctive programme combines gallery-based activities with projects in the public realm and educational and community activities and events. As an artist and outreach-focussed organisation, it encourages risk-taking and innovation, presenting art in its dedicated gallery space on Hoxton Street and at various locations in the vicinity, including vacant buildings, the street, the canal towpath and public parks in Hackney. We also produce publications by artists, about artists and about the cultural impact of contemporary art.

OUT OF NOWHERE
A presentation of Jeremy Moon’s work by Neil Clements at PEER and Large Glass


Out of Nowhere features the work of British abstract painter Jeremy Moon (b.1934–1973). Amongst the first artists in Britain to interrogate the use of the shaped canvas, Moon was a significant figure in the 1960s London art scene, known for his playful use of colour and pattern while adhering to a practice that was rigorously non-representational. A mainstay of the exhibition programme at the Rowan Gallery his contemporaries included Bernard Cohen, John Hoyland and Phillip King.

For this exhibition artist Neil Clements (b. 1982) has drawn on his long-standing interest in Moon’s practice to select a number of paintings and a wide range of drawings and archival material for presentation across PEER and Large Glass. This project has emerged as a result of a discussion of the role an artist can play in advocating the work of another artist, and the dynamics of such an interaction. It is accompanied by a short text by Clements.

On display at PEER are a number of recently restored paintings by Moon, Shadows (1965), Out of Nowhere (1965), English Rose (1967) and No 3/73 (1973), as well as a sculpture by Clements – a ‘didactic’ structure that doubles as a projection screen. This will show digitally reconstructed versions of every painting Moon completed between 1964 and 1968. The presentation at Large Glass will concentrate on Moon’s works on paper, including a selection of finished drawings, rough sketches as well as preparatory material drawn from the archive held by his estate. These offer a number of insights into his working methods, but also serve to more closely situate his practice in the milieu in which he lived. Moon drew incessantly, and these studies were key in the process of developing his ideas.
