About the Artist Rerun
Works By Rerun
“It feels like chaos hitting our senses and yet we wear a mask of serenity like we’re on top of it all. I hope to show both the noise and the calm in my work.”
Initially he used one medium at a time but has now moved on to mixed media, enjoying the freedom of collage, the immediacy of spray paint and the different marks that can be made, but also the flawless finish of oil paint which he was trained to use. He loves the materials and the craft of making something from a blank canvas just as artists have for hundreds of years.
Rerun is drawn to painting not only a means of creative expression but for the sheer physical pleasure of the process. Working on several pieces at once he is constantly on the move, one minute spray painting a canvas tacked to the wall, the next standing in front of an easel painting in fine details with a brush on a panel. This modus operandi translates into his work giving it an authenticity of style and contributing to the sense of spontaneity and high energy levels.
On a personal level Rerun is fascinated by the way we live now and what makes each of us an individual in a mass produced society. “I am interested in looking at our modern lives and how we’ve become who we are. What makes us us and how is that different to everyone else? I love contrasting eye popping colour with drips, tags and marks against serene, beautiful elements like faces and figures. I’m curious about the voice of our conscious and how we balance it with how we present ourselves to the world.”
“I enjoy all the materials I work with and the challenge of keeping things balanced to give life to my thoughts”.
