Cliff is a visual artist who employs traditional and digital media to explore real and perceptual change through repetition, re-evaluation and reduction. Having both a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art and a Masters of Science in Information Technology, he experiences the tension and synchronicity of these divergent disciplines.
Cliff works by digitally manipulating samples of his observational work By repeating images and looking again at what may have been overlooked, Cliff produces overlapping layers of interpretation and dialogue within a visual narrative.
CV & Education
I am a visual artist and digital draughtsman, employing physical and digital media to explore real and perceptual change through repetition, re-evaluation and reduction.
My work involves manipulating observational sampling and gestural line quality to invite a sensory response. I use repeating images to look again at what may have been overlooked and so produce overlapping layers of interpretation and dialogue, creating a visual narrative.
