Jack McElroy is a multidisciplinary artist who explores subjects surrounding Scottish identity and social history through personal and participatory research by collaborating with people and groups which develops and takes form as site-specific art projects, making sculpture, installation, photography, and drawing.
Born in Glasgow, and being brought up in a working-class background, McElroy has informed his interests in accessibility to the arts, and makes artwork that aims to attract people who may not think of themselves as ‘interested in art’ to encourage participation in the arts from a wider audience.
Work in Progress
An occurring theme in my work and influence is Glasgow – the city, its history, its people. For this show I am working on a site specific sculpture which will be an offer to look at the city, inspired by the view from the carpark which looks over the city from the city centre. Enjoy the view.
