Found imagery redrawn and relocated as pictograms in larger paintings is a feature of the work of both Roger Mortimer and Sam Mitchell. Despite their overtly different and distinctive signature styles, both artists are avid collectors and recyclers of imagery, drawn primarily from the internet. Operating as narrative vignettes, these multiple elements collide and work alongside each other, like characters building the larger story. In both cases, the components come together to paint what may be seen as interior psychological landscapes, open to deciphering.
