Statement

littlewhitehead is the working persona of Glaswegian artists Craig Little and Blake Whitehead. Key to their collaboration and their work is an idiosyncratic sense of humour. This peculiar factor fuels conversations, where with an encyclopedic range of references, from movies to witnessed events to art history, they construct absurd scenarios to subject to viewers. Their work often adopts a visual language that has immediacy with its audience. However, this ease of access betrays the fact that these humorous scenarios often express very dark, personal, ontological musings.
