Mike Inglis | Lead Artist
Mike Inglis is a practicing artist and part time lecturer at Edinburgh college of art. He has created a series of permanent and temporary Public Art commissions across Scotland and have shown his gallery based projects both nationally as internationally.
His practice deals with and explores links between public art and outsider art. He enjoys making publically sited work that explores transitional spaces that “outsider art” often inhabits as well as bleeding these practices into work for more traditional gallery spaces. He is particularly interested in found materials and adhocist approaches to construction.
Ethnographic research lies at the centre of his creative process. The focus of his research often engages in a direct dialogue with outsiders or isolated communities, their dogmas or doctrines becoming the core of our dialogues. He is interested in exploring ideas that surround superstitions and belief systems in a wide variety of outputs from drawing and printmaking to installation work.
Currently he is also developing a new funded research led body of work which examines, maps and explores outsider art culture and adhocist practices.
Previously he was artist in residence for Creative Scotland with Scottish Natural Heritage, artist in residence with the Stove group in Dumfries and has taken part in research based collaborations with many organisations such as UK Astronomy Technology Centre, Edinburgh Science Festival, Inverness Old Town Art and Edinburgh Printmakers.
