Ian Bottle’s work explores the impact of a shift in our attitudes towards the storage and retrieval of information and how this affects our emotional understanding of ourselves and the world: The idea of memory as embodied in material and spatial conditions has become a primary concern and is explored through a range of analogue and digital processes ranging from painting to sculpture and artists books.
Elliot Bottle’s practice encompasses photography, drawing collage, projection and sculptural intervention as a means of exploring the impact of interior spaces, both public and private. He dismantles and re-constructs objects and material, questioning not only their physical boundaries but their semiotic idiosyncrasies.
