Elliot Minor Artist Bio:
Elliot is a recent graduate of the Manchester School of Art; and prior to this, also studied Architecture for a year at the Manchester School of Architecture. Recent Statement: The underlying theme to my work would be that of nature. It is undefinably complex and for me it has become a constant source of refreshing inspiration and a key to helping form new basis for artworks. My practice is also tinged with elements of architectural or design oriented ideas, and this influence has come from my past time studying architecture. The work has evolved over the last few years with my earlier work focussing heavily on concepts relating to the urban environment, especially material, economic and the tactile side of things. However, upon now living in a quieter more rural setting I cannot help but gain from this newer more natural surrounding; in many ways I have been forced to redefine what it is I want my work to achieve. Therefore my more recent artwork has this mix of the organic as well as the simplicity or functionality of something artificial and man-made. It is this battle between the two which I encourage as it challenges and changes the direction in which to view the work. Before writing too much, in a nutshell I’d say each piece is a sort of gesture or moment which has been captured and moulded into a particular system. They do not need to be taken too laterally, maybe they can be perceived as a mere symbol of something; could be time, movement, progression, or even destruction. Primarily it is about going back to the basics, not overcomplicating the work and expressing yourself in the briefest means possible.
