Black describes his work as “revealing the unexpected” as his oeuvres are viewed both from a distance and up close to make the ordinary extraordinary.
Combining his natural craft skills with a love of materials – many of which are recognizable everyday objects – Black creates portraits and abstract works. Using a laborious technique of hand painting and altering each tiny object to give gentle lines and shading to his subjects, Black has pioneered an elaborate new form of pixilation that he uses to hide subtle implications within each of his images.
During Frieze Art Fair in London in 2013, Black exhibited his debut show at London Opera Gallery. He has exhibited internationally including a recent exhibition entitled ‘Readymade’ in Hong Kong (2014) and in established galleries in New York, London, Paris, Dallas, Cannes, Dubai and Singapore.
