Mike Gough’s interest in the elusive quality of memory has always been an invariable interest in his art practice. Rooted in memories of his upbringing in Newfoundland, Gough’s paintings are autobiographical but carry universal narratives. In the absence of detail there is an opportunity for one’s own memories to develop. An expansive solitude and sense of isolation is met with a universal feeling of what it means to belong. At its core, his practice explores how our relationship with the natural world connects and defines us.
Mike Gough was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, in 1985. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in 2007 and in 2010 graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London with a Masters of Fine Arts.
