Dominic Hawgood


I am a digital artist specialising in stills, and my practice combines photography, CGI, lighting design and installation. Within my work three main themes persist, a fascination with technology, states of mind, and the removal of something from the real world. I take inspiration from things I observe, studying, isolating and reconstructing, and there is a constant drive to conjure something though the work, an attempt to transport the viewer somewhere. Curiosity pushes me to explore subject matter that’s intangible and I harbour a desire to connect with feelings I have not experienced, and investigate topics that inhabit the imaginary spaces of people’s minds.
