Dean Lockett

My work follows a ‘Dadaesq’ like aesthetic yet aims to experiment with a number of conceptual notions such as materiality, affordances and the expectation of objects. I find inspiration in objects themselves, and then proceed to look at the properties and characteristics that make it such- I then decide whether to exaggerate, alter or completely contrast these features to then begin working with the object. I often choose everyday household objects as these tend to be overlooked day to day. My work makes us stop for a moment in an ever-busy moving world, to try to figure out what exactly is going on in my pieces.
I also create 2D work that aims to stand alongside my sculptures in a supporting effort. These images hold the above aims but simply situate in the form of digitally composed composition, as opposed to a physical sculpture.
