Toby Lonergan
I am a Kentish artist with a passion for creating work which explores the interplay between text and image. Through my work, I seek to examine how narrative can be conveyed and enhanced through visual storytelling, and how seemingly disparate elements can be brought together to create a cohesive whole. My artwork focuses on the collision of these often separate realms and the ways in which they can function to create narrative. I have a particular interest in ink pens, which I use to create expressive lines and textures that lend my work a tactile quality whilst also incorporating digital tools into my creative process. This allows me to refine my compositions in ways that are not possible through traditional means. This interplay between analogue and digital techniques is an important part of my practice, as I believe it opens up new possibilities for exploring the relationship between text, image, and narrative.
