Raymond Church

Artist, Maker

The inspiration for my work is drawn directly from the use of imagery on classical pottery originating mainly from Greece. The scenes in my work are acute and challenging commentaries on our society and culture today. In some of my compositions I have retained specific symbolic elements of Greek mythology and juxtaposed them with contemporary images in an attempt to convey a social discourse. All of my ideas reveal a sense of the satirical and take on issues such as class, digital culture and social stereotypes. read full statement
