Jacob Squire’s practice engages with concepts such as trauma, emotional strain, love, lust, self and higher power. He has been focused on developing a tenet and philosophy which reflects his personal growth, and his intrigue with the bizarre and the obscure. Jacob examines these concerns through the use of painting, sculpture and costume. His practice is an exploration of the physicality of paintings. While drawing inspiration from artists associated with Art Brut and Neo-Expressionism, Jacob’s paintings bounce between two dimensional images and something more akin to sculpture, encompassing the audience in a labyrinthine installation.
