Echo Railton

Through large-scale drawings, minuscule paintings, playful performance and collaborative installation work I deal with the issues unique to our super-industrial age. I enjoy encouraging my viewer to mind the alien world seen through a microscopic, or the macro interconnectedness of all things affected by our seemingly insignificant daily choices. I hope to be revealing truths, and poking fun at sinister corporations or processes, and finding beauty in delicate systems or natural structures through my work.
This recent body of work is a reaction to human engagement with, and responsibility for land-use, agriculture and industry. From the universality of cellular configuration to the super-industrial agricultural systems that we have become dependent on, I play with forms and narratives and with my food.
