Scotland born, Hamilton based artist Craig McClure works from an influence of comic book illustration aesthetics. Questioning ideas of masculinity McClure’s paintings portray the struggles and insecurities of men in modern day society. Questioning whether men operate with dual personalities when being ‘real men’.
Using humour McClure aims to make digestible works and narratives that communicate his observations of irony with what it is to be a ‘real man’. McClure engages in disciplines ranging from illustration to fine art painting.
This series of paintings are made on sealed plywood with acrylic paint, using the strong bold lines found in comic illustrations. Telling the story of the corporate man at the work after party.
