Steve Bishop is based in London. His work deals with the complexities of representation. Often making abstractions from popular culture, his work explores the way in which meaning is mediated in an image driven world. Bishop's work engages with the dialectic of desire and value. Using juxtapositions of the profane and the momentous that are characteristic of advertising, Bishop subverts our conflated understanding of beauty and meaning.
