The Artist - John Elliott

As an artist I’m interested in the manufactured environment of machines, buildings, and technology. I’ve always been interested in works composed of multiple elements or repetition; the explosion of relationships that occurs between those elements and the idea that a sculpture or installation can be a snapshot, a moment frozen in time, inviting the viewer to participate and imagine the moment just before and the moment just after like physical manifestations of Edward Muybridge’s photographs updated for the modern world. In many ways my sculptures are like cargo cult representations of futuristic artefacts. My works usually include text or information transformed and encoded and then used to create the patterns, shapes, and colours that cover my sculptures. The materials I work are industrially produced materials such as metal, plastics, plywood, and other composite materials.
