Artist Statement

Through film photography I capture the subdued state of used public spaces. They are often forgotten about but the features of objects and materials are very relevant from day to day activity. Photographing in black and white gives a nostalgic memory and feeling of the mundane. From this resource I re-create the atmosphere and dream-like realities through painting and instillation. I want to highlight the physicality of these places and also the illusional, abstract feel from the different textures I present. The stains, wear and tear of the surfaces and materials recognises human activity. Peoples presence is identified but not obviously seen. https://www.instagram.com/henrymerrick1994/ https://www.henrymerrick.com/
