BA (Hons), Fine Art: Painting and Printmaking, Glasgow School of Art.
Speaking about his work, Robert McCormack says:
“A collection of dogs gather, two adults and one pup. Forgetting their pack, they articulate themselves through the nuclear family unit that domesticated them. Cast charcoal paws frantically draw self portraits while quiet rubber tongues erase them. Wooden armatures, that signal dog bodies, are hijacked and repurposed as drawing machines. Traces of Crufts apparatus, playground equipment and bones fight for attention as drawings move through a looping violent additive and reductive process.”
