Mehan Fernando
(click image to enlarge)

Mehan’s current work investigates a dialogue between how the work is made and the subject matter portrayed. These are often in stark contrast, with a distinct methodology and context for the work established through the combination of a miniature painting process and the intimacy of the Northern Gothic tradition, with iconography that is violent or disturbing. Mehan is particularly interested in how material, scale and image can function as complementary elements that can be fused or taken apart. They also explore a collaged aesthetic that can be traced back to an artist such as Hannah Hoch, where the components of synthetic images are disruptive.
