Aidan Moesbys’ practice is largely informed through the linguistic and visual imagery we use to create and make sense of our lives and the roles we take within our own stories..

His text-based works explore the conflict within ourselves and the world we inhabit. The overall theme is the often subtle, fragile and dynamic boundary between order and chaos, dislocation and memory.

Some artworks are cut out from or printed on to paper, whilst others utilise a variety of media, technologies and approaches in order to realise the artwork.

Whether using dust, parquet, paint or pixel as medium the text and its imbued meaning is always paramount – be it literal or metaphorical, conscious or unconscious, the concrete or the fluid.

His text installations explore psycho-dynamics, memories and complexes, our emotional baggage and psychological heritage. Within exists the simultaneous calm and dis-comfort - the conflicted continuum of ease and dis-ease.
