MAR SHRO GORA
Until this show I wasn't actually a video artist. I like to see interest, beauty or intrigue in normal every day objects. Normally I work with found/upcycled materials and with a 'make do with what I can get' attitude. Allowing the materials to contribute to the path the work takes. I work in which ever mediums are relevant at the time, I’m a photographer, sculptor, painter and builder in general.
I had recently bought a bike. I emptied the room and set up some cameras. I opened a can of juice. I was a bit fed up; nothing that I had done in the last week or so had really led anywhere.
Ah wiz jist gaun’ roon’ in circles.
It was only later that I realised this was the first act in a new body of work. Six months later, I cycled to the Netherlands.
I use animation as a way to capture the process of drawing. Therefore my films are time based drawings rather than drawn animations, and my approach is conceptual rather than narrative. An entitiy I cannot grasp on a rational level is being made accessible by a certain strategy of depicting it.
