The Welsh artist Jack Burton reflects socio-cultural topics in his collage-like paintings and installations, which often include photographical elements or writings. Influenced by movements such as pop, expressionism, abstract and street art, he merges each of these media within individual works to create an image where each jostles for primacy, and where the perceptions and expectations of each are also disrupted. His loud and humorous works reflect our current social structures and the relationship between human and state. It is precisely Burton’s sharp eye for the present day and its society that makes his works so interesting and contemporary.
