Gavin Porter Artist Bio:

Gavin Porter is a Belfast born Artist living in County Roscommon, Ireland. His artistic output consists of drawing, etching, sound installation and assemblage, with etching being his main medium of choice. Artist Statement By applying simple linear, often repetitive drawing techniques in an indeterminate way, my current work endeavours to reveal patterns and form amongst the seemingly unpredictable and chaotic. Each work on paper is executed with intricate detail and employs optical techniques referenced from historical engraving. The resulting images are poised between the sublime and the absurd, incorporating elements of the real and the imagined. Central to these observations lies a fascination with science and the mechanics of nature, , entropy, erosion and evolution. ‘’ Forms depicted by Gavin Porter have a clear recurrent structure, but they seem to have no start and no end. They are in a continuous but unpredictable process of development, as if they were never to complete their forming. We can observe the same process in our everyday lives, filled with repetitive tasks performed as part of our daily routines and with efforts of which results can rarely be clearly predicted, our existence is built of patterns but is still full of uncertainty.” Marta Slawinska, Curator In Isolation at Broadstone Studios, Dublin
