Cliff Crawford grew-up in the north-east of England studied and taught Art and then Computing in the Midlands and now lives in East Sussex. Best described as an enthusiast with an inquiring nature, Cliff gains his artistic inspiration from the varied environments of the south coast.
Cliff is fascinated by the process and uses both traditional and digital media to explore real and perceptual change through repetition, re-evaluation and reduction. Observation is central to his work and he uses repeating images to look again at what may have been overlooked to produce overlapping layers of interpretation and dialogue creating a visual narrative.
Having both a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art and a Masters of Science in Information Technology, he experiences in his work the tension and synchronicity of these divergent disciplines.
