Will Ayres

Will Ayres explores through painting the multiple dimensions of memory. This process allows Ayres through the use of collected images from cultural references and personal memorabilia initial content to reconstruct and examine the integration of the narrative between reality and personal memory. These paintings focus on the actions of passing time, creating an essence, the inner workings of an image. Pairing back, investigating and examining the process of memorising and reconstructing reality, to give a more mindful insight into our daily recollections.
