Collecting, recording and remaking found objects, Joseph Doubtfire?s research inspires a constant shift between simple things and art objects.

Detritus, with delusions of grandeur, is steadily detached from typical understandings of value and is re-situated in contexts above its apparent station. Disrupting notions of skill, the work, and the familiar things it embodies, make playful references to the formal practices of painting, drawing, sculpture, and museology?as such, this process involves a relearning of things we so often encounter.

Doubtfire is a Lecturer in Art and Design at Blackpool School of Arts.
