Collection: Gavin Mitchell

GAVIN MITCHELL

Gavin Mitchell’s portfolio is always ‘work in progress’ whether creating art or observing (sketches). Having graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, Gavin Mitchell chose to take an extended sabbatical from sugar tints, soft grounds, solarisation and f-stops to concentrate on getting a proper job. However a career in design and production, whilst allowing him, within reason to indulge in creative fantasies, never really fully satisfied his artistic appetite.

Gavin Mitchell returned to be a full-time artist, to use his talents as a photographer, print-maker and collagist in an attempt to create images that
resonate and appeal.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“The human and material landscape is where I draw my inspiration. Captured through my lens or found through digging deep, the environment I live in and the world I travel through provides a limitless source of references that enthuse, intrigue and excite.

My own photography or ‘found’ material provide me with the origins from which my artwork is created, trawling through car boot sales, junk shops and antiques fairs, anything that catches my eye. The story behind my most recognised work started with finding a vintage Japanese postcard with enigmatic images of Geishas. Coincidentally I also found a vintage Playboy magazine at the same car boot sale. The idea of East Meets West/Culture Clash began there.

I am always striving to find ways of adding another visual ‘layer’ to the inherently two-dimensional nature of my source. The eclectic nature of the editions of work featured on this website are a reflection of my restless ‘digging’, either visually or literally. Every corner you turn or old box you dig through can send you off on an entirely new adventure.”
