Stuart Layton is a visual artist working primarily with video and installation.
"Stuart Layton’s films originate from a fragment of information. They are paeans to anecdotes, passing comments or passers-by. Using found footage, Layton weaves a narrative rich in humour, pathos and nostalgia. His works begin on a local and intimate scale but ultimately come to represent something more profound and global."
Jane Morrow - Artist Development and Studio Network Manager, Firstsite, Colchester.
Layton is currently studying for a Masters Degree in Moving Image at the Royal College of Art, London.
