Atik Gallery signs Alumnus Justin van Vliet

The works are a series of abstract light paintings, using installations of layered materials, objects, individuals and coloured lighting. The works are about the acceptance of the intangible. Based on our daily thoughts, problems and options in life, there are many things we feel and are powerless to fully understand and control. The moment we relinquish any need to do so, surrender and accept our thoughts and what we see, a deep enjoyment of the world sets in.
Besides the limited editions I am also making single edition hand-resined C-type prints which are up for exhibition in the Netherlands.

Justin writes about the signing process: "At the begin of the year I was commissioned to photograph a series of famous artists. Many showed an interest in the works I was creating  and encouraged me to make these a more central part of my life. A couple of months later I was contacted by the Atik gallery and signed with them. The Atik Gallery ( works in collaboration with and American publisher called Odhams press (, the company sells high quality limited edition prints in the UK and the US. The show in October will be a series of new artists taken on by the Atik gallery for the coming year and will show for a week at the Gallery on the Corner in Battersea. I will be one of the 6 artists showing work at the show."

The exhibition will run from the 27th October to 1st of November (10am - 7pm Monday to Friday, - 10am -3pm Saturday) at the Gallery On The Corner,  155 Battersea Park Rd, London, SW8 4BU
