Riley Payne’s meticulous photorealist drawings tease out new connections between disparate but instantly recognisable pictorial elements. By re-rendering existing photographic imagery through a labour-intensive drawing process, he attempts to stem the tide of visual information that assaults us daily. Enigmatic and open-ended, Payne’s drawings encourage new relationships between language and image that are achieved through the use of humour, subversion and recontextualisation.
