Alistair Ayres hunter

Alistair likes to work with a wide range of media, combining traditional methods, such as drawing, printmaking and sculpture, with technological processes like video, digital photography and computer programming. He is interested in exploiting tensions as a tool for revealing more about his subjects. Recurring themes are human domination over the natural world and the labels placed on objects and beings by society. He often takes some everyday aspect of life as a starting point – a story from a newspaper, a construction site, discarded objects – and relocates them within a broader context.
