Aspex Guildhall presents ‘A Self Portrait’, a solo exhibition of works from Sam Hiscock.


Hiscock is an illustrator and mark maker, whose work details the curious and familiar objects displayed in the artist’s family home. The artist believes that every object or collection possesses a fascinating tale. His eclectic interests are often used as a means of inspiration, from old promotional advertisement and packaging tins to antiques and larger British moths.

Hiscock said: “Over the last few years the subject of my illustrations has reflected my interest in objects and their stories. What makes someone buy a pair of ceramic cats? Who made them? Are they supposed to be so ugly? I see the beauty behind the mystery and the often-mundane purpose of shelf fillers and dust collectors, and I am constantly striving to visually document this”.
