About the Artist
Harry Hurlock (b.1992, UK) is a visual artist whose works form part of the his research into the decline of heraldic symbolism, and the restructuring and removal of the holders of institutional power; images of swans and heraldic lions appear in various states of entropic decline. Displayed in state of being only partly ‘exhibited’, (either about to be hung or having just been removed), Harry's paintings and their display address ideas of constant states of flux; of the ever shifting centres of power and control, and of an implied sense of past or future action, reaction and rebellion. The heraldry, centre of feudalistic symbology, is caught and frozen in a dismantled state.
