Stuck Iside Looking Out, 594 x 420mm, ink on paper, 2009.

Greig Burgoyne will transform the exhibition gallery at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery with a large-scale wall drawing that literally stares back at the viewer. Based on objects gleaned from coastlines and urban centres around the world, Greig Burgoyne’s resulting drawing transforms these found fragments into beguiling and at times stark revelations, where perceptions become cracks in an otherwise carefully constructed world of facades and denials that turn the space back on the viewer resonating both anticipation and suspicion
