Fergus Polglase

Central Saint Martins

Polglase aims to slow the viewer down and appreciate mark making, texture, colour and scale that “you won’t get on a screen.” He focuses on constructing layers of paint through a laborious process that is violent, fast and instinctive. He throws paint onto unstretched canvas on the floor. Inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S Thompson and other themes such as masculinity, sports players and motorcycle gangs, Road Trip is based on an imagined motorcycle ride down a long stretch of road in the American desert.
