Hawgood is a cross-disciplinary artist whose practice has emerged out of photography’s expanded field, and progressed towards both simulation and site-specific installation. He investigates psychological space through optics, light, CG, animation and design; reflecting on the experience of the real world within the virtual. With work spanning both still and moving image, his route into visual computing has been informed through an interest in perception and the role of the lens within VFX.
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2014, Dominic has had solo exhibitions at TJ Boulting, London, UK; Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin, Ireland; and the Brighton Digital Festival X British Science Festival, Brighton, UK. He has also won the British Journal of Photography International Award and been selected as a Foam Talent.
He lives and works in London, UK.
"His images call attention to decisive and current questions about the ontological and epistemological nature of photography, while simultaneously forcing us to question the limits, tensions and articulations between real and virtual, between fact and fiction, between representation and imagination." Sérgio Mah - curator and professor at the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences & Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon.
