Aubrey Higgin is a young artist who focuses on motion and the unknown. His works focus on colour and gestures through layering and removing oil paint. The idea of motion was inspired by his photography using long shutter speeds. The theme of the unknown was inspired by his battle with an undiagnosed illness for two years, a period in which he developed a keen interest in Damian Hirst and the sublime. Other influences include the languages created by Schwitters and Rauschenberg, the dense layering of Mehretu, and the technique of Richter using a palate knife.
