The Shape Of Things To Come (GSA Degree Show)

The Glasgow School of Art, Tontine Building, Glasgow, 2016

We are in a period of time where man has caused long-term damage to the Earth – the age of man – what could the next epoch of time look like if it was a world beyond man?

The Shape Of Things To Come articulates a post-apocalyptic worldview through constellations of modular works and immersive wall and floor drawings, which integrate illusionary drawing and painting techniques with abstract minimalist surfaces. The work combines humanities fading presence with elements from nature to question how long man will live in respect to deep time and to comment on the culpability of our actions against the environment for humans now and humans to come.
