Jack Brindley

MA work

Central to Brindley’s practice is an attentiveness to how objects circulate in the world. As everything can be traced back to a set of ‘conditions’ that produced it, Brindley’s work is engaged in exploring how expectations and encounters with objects can be manipulated. Artworks are contingent with their surroundings; responding both physically and conceptually to the space they are situated within. Working with found material gestures and their relationship between ‘use-value’ and a potential cultural significance, Brindley’s work is concerned with how temporal, spatial and economic practices have shifted throughout history and as a result how ideas and objects exist in the world. Fundamentally Brindley is interested in art’s ability to comment on and re-proposition these ideas in a new light.
