statement

 

Pat Flynn's work examines the language of the mass produced. His practice primarily covers photography, film and installation.

His work draws on ideologies, processes, themes and sentiments found in Hollywood films, computer games, consumer goods and advertising.

Flynn creates narratives around our need to believe, the ways we fetishize belief and the ways in which we reflect on our mortality in light of this.

His work fuses disparate rhetoric's moving between abstraction and figuration

In his predominantly digitally generated work, Flynn presents a fictionalised world full of cliché and pathos, a constructed sublime for passive beings.
