Cameron McCracken is a neurodivergent socially engaged artist currently living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. Originally from Milnathort, Perth & Kinross-shire, Cameron’s practice is primarily the pursuit of a desire to create spaces in which people can relax, renew and revive themselves. The point being to normalise open conversation, spread sociality, and whenever possible raise each other up, not cancel each other out.
The other half of his practice derives from, explores, and unpacks his inner thoughts and experiences in an effort to reflect upon, understand and renew himself. To stay grounded, and be able to maintain the more socially engaged half of his practice, Cameron feels these secondary personal projects ought to continue in tandem.
Cameron takes inspiration from both past and present personal experiences and observations, in turn he attempts to reinterpret these things in a transformative way. He also derives inspiration as an artist from what he and his work can do to help others, be that in simple ways or more involved. By using the mediums of sculpture, illustration, photography, and painting his work expresses a celebration/aspiration of self-love, love for his fellow man and sociality.
