Neil Ferguson's interests include: structuring personal “art systems” employing rules and strategies to track small thoughts and imagining. This approach looks to engage with the politics of looking and making to explore connections with an audience. The work is both reflexive and reflective to highlight situations and objects often using extensive series of images to display the versatility of image production.
This serialising and capturing of experiences places importance on “almost nothings” and “wee thoughts”, as the moments of extreme clarity that sustain art practice and its theoretical development. These interests aim to promote drawing, painting and making art, not simply as skills or fashionable commodities but as thinking tools.
