Selected Artist

The primary focus of Jack’s practice hinges on the material fabric of the built urban environment. He explores how we present ourselves through the trace material elements we produce within the context of the city.  Whilst simultaneously investigating the ways in which, Jack himself, as an artist, can alter public space within Edinburgh city centre.  Consequently the work he produces almost exclusively exists and remains in the public sphere.

He makes small scale, marginal alterations that employ time-consuming traditional sculptural techniques such as stone carving and casting.  These interventions promote the city as an active space that can facilitate multiple uses for alternate publics.
