Failure and Success brings together four disparate pieces of digital-video photographic work. The aegis for this grouping is an attempt to understand how strands of thought join to form an expanded landscape. Not specifically dependent, perhaps supportive, perhaps merely conversationally conjoined; though, a discourse develops.
Andrew Moran moved to London in 1978, to work as a studio based still-life photographer in advertising and design. In 2002 he started teaching at Hastings College of Art; graphic design, photography, advertising and drawing studies. He has recently started a Photo-festival group in Hastings.
His working method involves a reflective practice of converting text-based investigation into visual presentation. Unfolding, repeat or looped video images explore theoretical, psychic and philosophical ideas. The imagery refers explorative thought, against the mimetic representation of the object in the photograph.
