Damian Moppett's artistic practice uses a wide variety of media to
question ideas of mastery, craftsmanship and value. Drawing on broad
references from the history of modern art, Moppett uses the mediums of

Images of the artist's studio appear frequently in Moppett's work,
showing the studio as both a site of experimentation and a theatrical
setting for the performative nature of art making. His studio images are
visually dense, cluttered with objects, materials and artworks in
process, in a working space often lit dramatically. Moppett then turns
this documentation into finished paintings or drawings, making the
representation of the process of creation the subject of his work.
