Adam Hogarth | Profile

 

 

Current work for sale: Adam Hogarth

 

My work


My work has theoretical links to the Auto-Destruction Art movement (founded by artists such as Gustav Metzger and Raphael Ortiz) and its relationship to language. 

I believe that language is in a constant state of flux, destroying and reinventing itself over periods of time and I look to forms of ideoglossia (languages spoken by small groups) to inform my practice. 

My work typically takes the form of video, drawing, sculpture, print and performance.

 

 

About me


I am an artist currently living and working in London. I graduated from the Fine Art Printmaking department at the Royal College of Art with an MFA in 2013 and prior to that completed at Ba Hons in Fine Art at Northumbria University. Upon leaving the RCA I was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries and have shown work at the ICA, Spike Island (Bristol), Tate Britain, The William Morris Gallery, Rheged Centre (Penrith), The Dock Museum (Barrow in Furness), Arts Depot (London) and Wallington House (Northumberland). 


I work part-time for Advanced Graphics London as a Printmaking technician. I have developed and refined my printmaking skills to a highly professional standard that I believe reflects in my own practice.


In addition to this I work for the Working Men’s College as a part-time etching technician. In this role I have also ran workshops for students and help a variety of students of all ages and levels of experience. I have, in the past worked at Northumbria University as a visiting artist where I have ran lectures, group seminars and critique sessions.
