About the Artist - Shane Wheatcroft
Shane is an artist based in Kent in the UK and has specialised in collage and assemblage for the last six years.
The source material for their collages comes from their ever-growing collection of vintage magazines, old books, stamps, and any interesting bits of paper ephemera they can find. Regularly trawl charity shops, antique markets, second-hand bookshops and eBay for new material.
Shane's ideas tend to be led by the materials they find, so start with an image and randomly add another image until a picture emerges, adding more pieces, paint, printing, found objects, etc., to reinforce the final concept. Their working process is a bit like making a jigsaw puzzle and hunting for missing parts which will fit. Often, the initial idea won't feature in the last detail, but it's been invaluable as a starting point.
In their recent series of portraits, Shane has tried to create scenes of drama within the face of the portrait subject. Often the issue is an eyewitness to the scene, or the drama represents a memory, daydream or an incident in the subject's mind.
The single eye motif is a way to connect the portrait with the scene, aesthetically and emotionally, but also represents the idea of the eye being the window to the soul. Shane has always been interested in juxtaposing the glamorous with the mundane in his work.
The main influences on their work come from music, current affairs, plays, films and life experiences. Artistically, the artists who have inspired them the most are Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, Cindy Sherman and Linder Sterling, amongst many others.
