1 to 26 September
Brenda May Gallery
Forty years ago I gained an honours degree in economics. While I turned away from that discipline long ago, I can't help but watch the business of the world through that particular lens. I must say I'm not impressed. Now with the posturing, asset stripping, hostile takeovers, the whole culture of contemporary capitalism is very different. We look to our leaders for models of ethical behaviour. Our expectations are low, yet we are still disappointed, hence the subject matter that pulled me into these paintings.
I am first and foremost an artist and as such my principle desire is to create engaging artworks. The visual aesthetic here is not contemporary, nor modern. I want a tension between the ideas and those pre-modernist notions of beauty. I hope it makes the actions of these men even more reprehensible.
