My practice is a dissemination of popular culture and queer aesthetics. At the core of my interests lie the painful emotions of human nature crossed with the whimsicality of everyday occurrences. Using found objects, utilitarian and mass produced detritus. I configure objects which speak of the contemporary fleeting moment. My sexuality is central to both how my works can be read and how they come into being. From the persecution of and silencing of minority voices. To the globolisation of cultures and experience.Each work stands as a questioning of our beliefs and of the very nature to which we belong.
Chisholm’s practice is informed by popular culture, gender issues, the financial crisis, the appropriation of iconic works of Art and the eternal cleansing and contagion of society. The transcendence of political climates, controversies & cultural strife are key to the reading of his works. Utilising found & utilitarian objects, Sculpture is the key to the artists practice however diverse media including photography, video & drawing creates a practice which speaks of the contemporary.
Language and its idiosyncrasies combined with the juxtaposition of the Good, The Bad and the Ugly is a recurring theme in his works, in part political and activist for Gay Rights and in soul irreverence and whimsicality run deep. Ultimately The Artists despair at the world and a fundamental desire to belong and be accepted even in the face of adversity are the truths behind this young artists his practice. R.F 2012 CRITIC
