My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points.

For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.

A History of Touch solo exhibition

Mark Mcleish
A History of Touch
This body of work assembles a collection of new object based installation and sculpture that questions the presumptuous act of knowing through internalisation. By placing objects to be seen I proscribe to aggravate logic in the reading and propose equalised values of just how do we generate meaning?
By reducing thinking to be stabilised in a physical space with objects, I compress intersubjectivity by initiating a version of completeness. This is preserved by separation within exit points of making. What do these objects continue to mean? This is a question I will never stop asking as this is when a transference takes place.
This exhibition formalises a metaphysical approach by turning objects into thought and vice-versa. A confession of experience retold in a broken miss-spelt anthology of objects.
