Born in London, Marcus Haydock is an internationally exhibited British artist who approaches art and imagery from a psychological perspective, analyzing the human experience and interaction through photography. In 2016 Haydock published Insurrection, a photography book narrating lived experiences with no structured theme. The body of work, which comes to light at Blue Star Contemporary this summer, is full of portraits and landscapes, breathing life into inanimate objects seen and used every day. Void of color, the photos suggest an uncomplicated subject matter, with the major concept rooted in the psychological and sensory experiences of each viewer. Rather than pinpointing a meaning in the object, importance is focused on how that object can be translated by various different people, pulling from their own unconscious world experiences.
