ROSS VAUGHAN

“I’m interested in paradoxes, parallel realities and infinite loops, as they occur in physics, technology, philosophy and the arts, but especially in relation to visual culture and art history.
In my paintings I often use impossible geometric shapes or juxtapose intentionally mismatched perspectives to simplify (or flesh out) parts of these complex ideas in a visual shorthand.

I embed my own made-up symbolic language into conventional portraits, often painted from found photographs, to obscure their original meaning and momentarily disorientate the viewer.
My intention is to make paintings that are generous, with a strong attention to technical craftsmanship, that are engaging, and require a level of participation and ‘figuring out’ from the viewer”.
