British artist Terry Flaxton (b.1953) has exhibited internationally since 1977. His most recent triptych “The Intersection of Dreams” exhibited for 12 months at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York to over 1,300,000 people. He is recognised as a powerful exponent of challenging moving image art ('A history of Video Art', 'Diverse Practices' 'A Directory of British Film and Video' etc) and held in various collections (Lux London, Video les Beaux Jours, Harris Museum, AICE Milan etc). ‘In Re Ansel Adams’ (2008) is in the permanent collection of the Harris Museum in Preston, and the Royal West of England Academy of Art (Flaxton is a lifetime Academician). Wishing to know how to ‘mix his paint’, Flaxton spent 30 years as a cinematographer lighting media from 35mm to today's Digital Cinematographic medium. Flaxton has consistently utlilised state of the art technologies in creating sculptural installations, flat panel pieces and works for television broadcast. "Terry Flaxton has been an impassioned, indefatigable presence in British Independent Video for two decades. During this time he has assembled an impressive body of work encompassing powerful, polemical documentary and highly personal, poetic video art" (Steven Bode). Among Flaxton’s installations “In Other People’s Skins" (2008/2010), toured ten cathedrals and various museums and over 350,000 people took part in the work in the USA, China, Italy, Japan and the UK. http://www.visualfields.co.uk/indextoart.htm
