John Squire — Disinformation - Poster
2019 891 x 594 mm (35 x 23 inches) Published by Other Criteria
‘Disinformation’ presents a brand new series of paintings by John Squire. These large-scale works are based on photographs taken by the artist or found online. Squire alters the images using editing software, which he overloads to prompt visual glitches. These partially distorted, fragmented scenes are then enlarged from their original small screen format and rendered in the traditional medium of oil and canvas. The figures blend, blur and collide with their surroundings, their features confused and sometimes entirely lost.
