SMART ART 101
Social Modern Art Relevant Today And Real Tomorrow
Raymond Burrows body of work, SMARTART 101 took five years to create. The individual elements in Ray's work span from the year he was born to the present day. His chosen medium, media images which are fed to and consumed by society are now de-contextualised.
Ray, in his own unique style, presents these images 'cutting', condensed, juxtaposed and more often than not subverted. His work serves as a provocative social commentary, providing Food for Thought to those who come in contact with the work.
Each piece runs with its own narative, resonating on many levels of interpretation yet all the work assimilates to form a whole.
Where do you fit in the picture? Do you see the work or does the work see you?
One thing is certain; all is not as it is seen.
