Belfast based artist whose installation and sculptural practice draws on familiar symbolism from ancient and modern belief systems.
Born in Belfast 1974, Stuart Calvin Graduated from the University Of Ulster in 2011 with a BA hons in Fine and Applied Art and, in 2016, with a Masters Degree in Fine Art. Calvin’s installation and sculptural work draws on familiar symbolism from magic, mysticism and the occult. His work explores incorporeal worlds, supernatural experiences and the human propensity to venerate and fetishise objects. Throughout Calvin’s work, references to New Age ideologies, superstitions and theories of consciousness are ever present. The work forms connections between the visible and invisible, the physical and metaphysical, the known and the unknown.
