Gavin Paramore - Conceptual Artist

The focus of my work deals with the conditioning of the human spirit and addresses a theory that the human body has capabilities far beyond what is generally comprehended, and thus how our current life structures only seem to subdue true identity into a state of dormancy. The simple fact that we do not use all of our brain is reason enough to raise questions about the quite, at times, arrogant assumption that we are at the peak of our evolution, and the general notion that what we can perceive must be fact or more to the point, what we cannot, must not be possible.

From the dreary outlook on life where, in general, when we are children we find encouragement in daring to believe in amazing journeys and feats to be undertaken or having the courage to entertain thoughts of becoming something more than the average everyday expectancy. Yet when we advance to a stage in life where we could and should be shaping new possibilities through thought and action, questioning notions of given perception in hopes of gaining insight as to what the individuals role is, we are grounded with talk of putting up with or just getting on with life in the same way everyone else does, bearing the unhappiness and burying that feeling of emptiness and un-fulfillment.

The works I produce are the results of study into myself in response to the world around us. From perception of given limits and frustration felt at the world of the ‘want very little of life’ majority. My concerns lie with seeking true virtue and grasping destiny for ourselves. Through truly knowing the self we can find a higher state of perception. Thus suffusing the whole with new purpose.

I am only a nomad for the time, a seeker of questions to find the answers. The manifestations I produce are my thoughts on the journey embarked upon.

Change is in front of us, we need just to perceive it…
