Ingerland: Artist's Statement

Artist Statement

My work explores the relationship between Jungian archetypes and midlife subcultures.
With influences as diverse as Caravaggio and Miles Davis, new insights are synthesised from both traditional and modern layers.
Ever since I was a postgraduate I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the human condition. What starts out as yearning soon becomes debased into a manifesto of power, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the chance of a new order.
As momentary replicas become transformed through diligent and critical practice, the viewer is left with an epitaph for the possibilities of our culture.
