Abstract

Steve Dutton’s recent work is concerned with what he describes as ‘internal noise’, the ambiguous interplay of conscious and subconscious thoughts, fragments of language remembered, heard or read, the visual world overlaid with images of it, all of which are constantly at play inside our heads. In what he suggests is a kind of ‘speaking in tongues’, Dutton externalises this ‘noise’ in material form, manifest sometimes as a text on paper, sometimes in larger formats utilising painting or neon, sometimes through a spoken voice or its digital avatar, and, as here, through drawings that emphasise that writing itself is a form of drawing.
