Kevin A. Pickering

Inspiration for my creative practice comes from whatever sparks my interest. I try not to keep to fixed topics, as I like the freedom to explore all things, however recurring themes throughout my work, are the male form and our perception of beauty, and the aesthetics of decay and degradation.

An exploration of the effects of nature on man made objects and the changes to surfaces that result from the decaying process kickstart my interest. Weather, and the passage of time produce textures and colours, which are both transient and ephemeral yet often stunning. The world, in my perception, is just a surface. I am interested in the narrative that lies behind this and the visual evidence. This offers infinite possibilities for creative interpretation to happen, this is where true depth transpires. As nature overcomes mans best efforts we often find true beauty.
