Callum Diffey (b.1997) is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Glasgow, Their practice utilises photography, sculpture and video. Toeing the line between sensitivity and brutality their work is an investigation of concepts such as the dichotomy of pain and pleasure, the sacred and the profane, collective memory and trauma, identity and the beauty in the debased. When two opposing ideas or feelings are whole or experienced simultaneously. Visually referencing motifs present within queer culture and found imagery they creates a false, surreal sense of reality. Situations in which everyday objects are altered or detached from their natural function and context, the results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
