During the last 3 weeks, as eack week does indeed seem to present a new international disaster, Gilliam Studios has focused on producing mixed media prints in support of the prisoner Leyla Farzadi of Iran who was arrested unlawfully during the protests following the national elections.
This is a very special moment in this phase as the outfit is primarily focused on abstract productions, of all kinds. This shift towards a political expression using art is a very new development.
Gilliam Studios would like urge anyone interested in the work of Amnesty International to not only get involved in the traditional way of writing letters in support of prisoners of conscience but to also branch outwards and explore new mediums to alert people in the everyday public that those protesting in Iran in a peaceful manner should be unbndingly supported. Not only within their country but also internationally. This means writers, artists, singers, philosophers and anyone who has a voice and a network to send a message. Freedom of expression is one of the most important things that exists in the ( extremely misunderstood ) human condition and Leyla Farzadi (s) voice must be fortified.
Here is a brief introduction to Gilliam Studios.
Gilliam Studios was set up in Toronto in 1994 by artist Luke Gilliam providing audio and video installations to the film and music industries.
Gilliam Studios is now based just outside of Bristol in the United Kingdom and focuses primarily on installations, mixed media production, graphic design, new media and literature, and most importantly a vehicle to present media that fortifies the underpinnings of freedom of expression in music and art as it pertains to a congested social conditioning and a pretext that is drowned out by outdated policy and false products that subtract from tangible creative energy.
The key inspirations for this platform come from the mastermind free thinking international artists Michael Snow, Bruno Tocanne, Adam Daudrich, Quinsin Nachoff, Lionel Martin and Benoit Keller. All of whom long been recognised in their fields of music and visual arts.
