ABOUT THE ARTIST
Since Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2004, Jock Mooney is on a rampage that encompasses sculpture, drawing and performance. He constructs a world populated by grotesque characters, bizarre animals, lurid flowers and morphed effigies of historical, mythical and religious figures. A carnivalesque horror show that raises a mirror to the modern world.
His recent body of painfully detailed drawings include the work ‘I’ll Watch You Crumble Like a Very Old Wall’, which, in typical Mooney style, references low and highbrow culture alongside a sense of emotional collapse – a snapshot akin to someone in a fragile state leafing through a Greek tragedy whilst BROS plays on Radio 2.
