Gavin Mitchell

Artist Statement

I aim to produce an evolving body of work that investigates the harmony,
contradictions and duality of cultural aesthetics within the different societies.
The human and material landscape is where I draw my inspiration, captured through
my own photography or found in the environment in which I live and the world I
travel through. There is all around us a limitless source of cultural references that
enthuse, intrigue and excite.
I am always striving to find ways of adding visual layers to my imagery. Illustrative
and playful mixed media limited edition artworks through the use of found imagery,
collage, screen print, sculpture and photography.
Ultimately I seek to create original and thought provoking works of art that will
make the viewer pause a while.
