Justin Larkin

11 Jan, 2013 - 24 Feb, 2013

To captivate the imagination is crucial.
Making relationships is an essential part to what Justin Larkin does. Combinations of images removed from their original narrative context, become obsolete in one sense, but also available for re-animation in another, often a vastly different scenario. Re-configured pieces are positioned in dramatic new situations where notions of value and authenticity are questioned.
Working intuitively and instinctively overflowing spills of installations imbued with a sense of humour and play are part of the creation process. Photographs, paintings, printed matter, sculpture, drawing and collage are all important. Cartoons play an important role, their illustration of physical and mental situations presented illogically are inspiring.
Often polar aspects reside in the work primarily concerned with metaphysical dualities: the play of opposing concepts such as true and false, presence and absence, inside and outside, authentic and manufactured, disgusting and beautiful, history and future, sense and nonsense. Various arrangements of paintings, sculptures, and market bought items reference uncertainty.
Larkin hopes to delight, inspire, and intrigue the beholder and in some way, reference experience being contested and fragmented.
