My paintings are large in scale and the nature of my work is resistant from the institution, not only in terms of scale, but as a reaction to the use of the ready-made and how artists have totally embraced this object as an overriding statement about contemporary society. I recycle this notion and displace the ready-made back into the made by reusing it within an Art Historical and contemporary context namely re-introduce the ready made to the language of painting. I am a PAR specialist establishing the Research Priority Area for Practice as Research at the University of Gloucestershire and am currently working on a joint funded publication with Birmingham City University on this theme.
Angus is working with colleagues on joint projects and is currently working on a project entitled '1 Enoch' with Professor Philip Esler, to be exhibited in both Gloucester and Canterbury Cathedrals in the middle of Summer 2020. The paintings will have a linear narrative effect on the audience, being created using the language of figuration into an abstract context using the process of post- conceptual painting. The audience will be taken through the journey of Enoch from earth into heaven, giving them the transient experience from image to image.
