Will Claridge graduated from Falmouth University with a BA in Fine Art. His work reflects contemporary culture through its innovative blend of photography, painting and installation.
Fascinated by themes of banality, the quotidian and the everyday, the power of Claridge’s art lies in its ability to change focus: what do we see, these pieces seem to ask, when the artist subverts the conventional focal point? What do we see when our vision is obstructed, when the abstract crashes in on the figurative, when the blur of an out of focus photograph demands our undivided attention?
Finishing his original photographic works with hand-applied, tactile details, Claridge’s artworks are out of the ordinary: these poetic snapshots are powerful, visually arresting, and totally compelling. This is the everyday; but not as you’ve ever seen in it before.
