VJ Moreton’s photomontage and collage is grotesquely frank and stark. Each monochromatic landscape or portrait, a painstakingly constructed hybridisation of cultural and political references. “Refusing to bland out the picture” with Photoshop, he meticulously builds and photographs the scenes under precise lighting conditions. The resulting images simultaneously poignant, and in and out of tune with today’s visual culture.
VJ Moreton studied at Meadow School of Arts, Dallas, Texas and has exhibited widely, gaining many awards. Collections include Arts Council England, The Lisson Gallery and private collections in the USA, France and the UK.
