Working with mixed media within his art practice, William Britten produces societal work, and, as an apparent by-product, an operative solution for his own consolation. This desired solace often stemming from the exploration of ethnographical issues and challenging the conceptual confines often associated with contemporary photographic practice. In search of a universally intelligible, explicative art practice he works towards the creation of a quixotic dialectical image. This self-aware approach towards explaining the ineffable often subliminally emerges in the absurd, adding criterion to the work. This approach is currently the only way the artist feels he can plot his antecedent cause through the material visual. He has recently graduated from BA Photography at the London College of Communication, and also writes for Film’s Not Dead.
