William Cotterill is a contemporary British artist. His practice explores the anxiety and excitement of being overwhelmed by information, the idea of breakdowns and disrupted narratives, and how matter can express the over-complicated and transitory.
Oil paint and left-over junk from society form a language of stuttering processes. Through layering and concealing, objects are worked on simultaneously, feeding each other in a holistic approach to making, that has no hierarchy of materials. Cotterill uses paint both for its ability to form illusions, and as a sculptural medium that can be dug into, carved, woven and excavated.
He is interested in the feeling of confusion and uncertainty as a specific, textural place to exist in and to explore.
