I'm Paul Liptrot, an artist who doesn't use a brush; I work with a range of materials from plaster and clay, through to latex, ice and oil, which allow me to create ambiguous objects and images. My practice begins out of a scientific curiosity and I look for materials that intrigue. I want to become involved in what the material represents and how it can be transformed into something beyond our expectations. I try to create intentionally abstract images and objects, which enable me to then develop a relationship with those viewing my work. Watching as someone reacts to an unseen entity that they have sensed in my work creates a conversation about who and what each person is and what they believe.
