Hugh Burry

In his image-based practice, Hugh Burry delves into the essence of humanity amid the growing digitisation of our world. Through surrealism, satire, and abstraction, his work mirrors the escalating simulation, marketisation, industrialisation, and consumption of culture, prompting contemplation on the remnants of humanity in an era dominated by data and algorithms. The deliberate use of slower traditional mediums and forms of representation within his art creates a tension, rebelling against the efficiency and thoughtlessness characteristic of the world they depict. As the world becomes increasingly contextualised through these digital constructs, Burry’s art questions the profound implications for human experience, challenging perceptions and inviting viewers to reflect on the core of our existence in this technologically driven era.
