Hew Locke

Hew Locke is an artist who explores the subject of power, particularly through the representation of royal portraiture, coats-of-arms, public statuary, trophies, weaponry and costume. Drawing on the dynamic society of Guyana, the wider Caribbean and Europe, Locke delves deeply into the history behind the subject matter and objects involved in his work to create pieces that stand on a crossroad of cultures, mediums and historic references. Locke has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, Victoria & Albert Museum and British Museum in London, New York Museum of Art and Design, Atlanta Contemporary Arts and at Brooklyn Museum, New York as well as the Pérez Art Museum, Miami. This year he will be taking part in Prospect.3, New Orleans and the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India.
