  Back to profiles

Cameron Lings is a contemporary artist from the industrial-known town: Scunthorpe, UK. His practice combines elements of science and mathematics, these factors are critical in realising his uniquely abstract forms, where artistic form is generated from data-sets. Material choice also proves itself as a vital aspect of his work, ultimately pushing contextual and conceptual depth.

Cameron Lings is a Contemporary Artist and Sculptor based in the North East of the UK. Throughout his extensive artistic practice, aspects of time, data and statistics are combined within the context of a singular event, in order to realise a piece of art that despite its abstraction, remains functionally readable. Here, he questions and challenges perception of environmental space and traditional data sets. Cameron's belief being, that where we can record data, a form of art can, and does, exist within it, waiting to be unearthed via a physical and visual system of creation. Variants of scale, shape, material choice and form, surface within his creations, in order to provoke innate characteristics of which that still remain contextually relevant. When working with data sets, he finds that agency is handed from oneself to the pre-existing numerics, resulting in the works taking on their own instinctive visual traits. "My current work tends to ironically create itself, and in a way, already exists in a non-artistic language. I have found that my place in my practice, is to translate what exists; into a format which not only results in an intriguing piece of artwork, but as bridge between the gaps of science, mathematics and contemporary art.
