Jock Mooney (b. 1982 in Edinburgh, Scotland) lives and works in London, England.
Mooney makes sculptural works that are unique originals, produced by hand. They are either shown individually or en masse. By combining and contrasting these works in installations he intends to produce subversive shrines of sorts. Mooney’s work presents a contradictory vision that recalls votive offerings, video nasties and schoolboy humour and invites the viewer to seek out the familiar and question the unfamiliar.
