Visibly Evident
Mark Shaw
Undulating Schema, 2010

Through a range of media – photography, video, painting, printmaking and drawing – recurring themes of the contingency of perception, subverted meaning and the paradoxical nature of representation are investigated.

Objects and constucted forms are represented as models and schemas of ideas to question how meaning is formed; the tension between intention and interpretation.

Strategies of manipulation, interventions to disrupt, visual puns, reconfigured meaning and an interrogation of what is seen, known and understood.

Underpinning a disparate and diverse range of subject matter and influences, from Modernist cinema to the Theatre of the Absurd, is an engagement with ideas of representation and the construction of potential alternative realities.
