      Artist Statement

      John Vincent is predominantly a Digital Artist working with video and audio. His work ranges from short experimental films to video and audio installations. Experimentation with digital media has lead to further exploration of his interest in technology and the interplay of analogue and digital media often manifesting in surreal and dreamlike imagery and sound.

      The subject matter of Vincent’s work is often informed by local history and is usually sourced from archives and other research or a personal geographical relationship. Alongside this are notions of a contemporary suburban Gothic with elements of horror that touches on science fiction and time travel with a distinctly British feel. These ideas have led to the exploration and representation of eerie atmospheric interpretations of everyday life.

      Missing or hidden elements within scenes often convey a sense of mystery by alluding to events that have already occurred (or are about to). This can involve the concealment of the identities of characters within the frame, by the interaction of characters with the inanimate objects that surround them or by the total absence of characters with only the objects or architecture that remain.

      Vincent has received a number of commissions for digital work over the last few years resulting in some exciting collaborations and research based work.
