Graham Yarrington invites us into a world that is uniquely his own, and while it is shrouded in a tangible gloom and provides a home to a myriad of mysterious supernatural oddities, it still offers us light and hope. The darkness which pervades Yarrington’s work and which largely stems from his personal experiences with death, is counterbalanced with the glimmering luminescence of an optimistic connection with the unknown. Shrines and sacred objects present themselves with vivid clarity amidst monochrome scenes and afford sanctification from sadness, desolation and the endless distractions that accompany our contemporary existence in the technological era.
