Charlie Billingham (b. 1984)

Charlie Billingham (b.1984 London, England) previously studied Fine Art and History of Art at Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Edinburgh.

Through a process of layering, much akin to the production of collage, Billingham combines paintings with sculptural and printed objects to create pleasurable interior environments. A series of oil paintings loosely mimics and suggests the gesture of revelation that refers to the unmasking of the villain, seen at the end of episodes of Scooby Doo. These hang-on mirrors evoke the effect of a dream or memory sequence in a cartoon. Objects activate and engage with the paintings, proposing an alternative home for them, outside of the gallery.
