This work has been inspired by the Rio Olympic Games 2016, and Gold Medal awards, particularly that of Team GB, and is currently second on the leader table, inspired by the previous work “Rio 2016 Olympic Games: Three Letter Words” and previous “Rio 2016 Olympic Games: Three Four Letter Words in Braille” and “London 2012 Olympic Games: Three Four Letter Words in Braille”.

This has been inspired by the sculpture of the Olympic flame in the cauldron designed by American Artist, Anthony Howe. The sculpture has kinetic energy spheres and plates that amplify, reflect and rotates, the effects of the small cauldron, during the Opening Ceremony at the Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro. Each piece is designed to rotate independently around the ring, creating a pulsating movement and millions of reflections from the cauldron's flame.

"My vision was to replicate the sun, using movement to mimic its pulsing energy and reflection of light..." Anthony Howe

In the work I have replaced the plates with Gold Medals and similarly in Anthony Howe work, re-aligned these to form a hidden message in Braille and similarly rotated these, but with another hidden message inspired by Gold Medals and the Sun.

With my previous works, I am interested in codes and hidden messages. The Medals have been arranged in a pattern of six circles grid as used in Braille, to spell a Letter. Contains a series Four horizontal letters, spelling a Four Letter or Two letter words from the Games, and Three Words arranged Vertically. The First Word Spells “Team”, next word "GB 27" refers to Team GB's 27 Gold Medals, last word on bottom "Gold" (See image for Braille Letter key)

Within this work, I have divided the medal which has an outline of a circle of 360’ into 26 equal segments to represent the 26 Letters of the Alphabet (see image for medal rotated through 180’ to represent the Letter M). The medals have been rotated to spell sporting events of the Olympics, such that top three rows spells “Swim, Gym, Tri” (Tri refers to Triathlon). The medals have been displayed on a background of Purple which is the complimentary colour of the Medals, typically Yellow.

UK-based Vincent Artist is a Conceptual Artist and Post Pop Artist is best known for his abstract use of repetitive vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines superimposed with four-letter words forming a playable word search “The idea or concept [Conceptual Art] is the most important aspect of the work, and I use any medium [painting, digital, printmaking or sculpture] to convey the idea to the piece of Fine Art” The Artist is interested in the Duplicity of Life, the interaction between opposites, yin & yang, war & peace, love & hate, rich & poor, life & death. The Artist juxtaposes these contrasts with the innocent of Toys and Games used in our youth. Vincent Artist's most recent body of work includes "Berry Series" influenced by textiles and cloth of “Plaid” or tartan one of the most widely used patterns in history. The work used a combination of vertical stripes and horizontal stripes with transparency to the underlayer. The stripes follow a sequence or order from dark to light, known as Conceptual Art The previous body of work includes "Flags of the World" which communicates with viewers through linguistics, semiotics, and cryptography. The series includes English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and American Flags superimposed with four-letter words of their respective language forming a playable word search from A to Z. His previous works include, "Retro Celebrity Stars", which is a homage to celebrities of our past from the films of the Hollywood Golden Era, to the present day. Every one of these individuals helped create the world we live in today, and though we know of their names, their actual image might be fading from our memory. "Disasters of War", which is a homage to Heroes and Villains from World War I & II, by the use of humorous and tongue-in-cheek language to explore the more serious issues of the past to the present day. Heroes and Villains are portrayed in life, death, and immortality by the use of toys of our innocent youth. The toys are used as a satirical look at the “Disasters of Wars” revealing shock and truths of war and violence in a playful way.
