Will Coles


By synthesising a dichotmoic dissonance, the transgressive nature of Will Cole’s work integrates a crypto-aesthetic subtext referencing its post modern sympathies. It seduces the viewer, who, within the parameters questioning the decontextualisation of the subject, subconsciously resists, becoming the gesture it seeks to free itself from. This is resonant with deeper embedded cultural phenomenons his work demands resistance to, a rebellion against both their insipid specificity &¬†inevitable submissiveness.
