Derek Ogbourne studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London (1983-1989) and has exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad. Exhibitions include What Make You, What Makes You at the South London Gallery, Space International, Valencia, Spain and The Last Image, Museum of Optography at the Kurpfälzisches Museum der Stadt Heidelberg, Germany.

Ogbourne's work is powered by the frenetic and exhilarating ongoing plot of big themes: physical life, death, violence, beauty and the sublime; landscape and vision. Pulsing with the strengths and frailties of what it is like to be human, his obsessive preoccupations result in deeply complex, emotionally engaging artworks. He is best known for video works such as 'Gravity and Others', 'Struggle and Magic Mountain'. Ogbourne's latest works range from his cinematic piece 'Death and the Monument' and 'Flesh' - to his clinically sublime photographs of dissected cows' eyes and recent series of large sensitive landscape drawings.
