This recent body of work, Perpetual Present, continues Hamish Carr’s interest in contemporary modes of communication specifically the creation of digital networks and virtual communities. Envisaging these interactions in formation has formed the basis to activate a reality specific to his practice.

The work for this exhibition has developed through the adaptation of etchings, digital technologies and topographic methods. These recent paintings employ both concerted and gestural applications of medium. This combination enables Carr to create a fluid and transient environment.
