New works by Stephen Dunne & John Strutton.

Both artists share a preoccupation with ritualistic process, debased iconographies and compulsive aesthetics. Sometimes brutal often absurd their approach to figuration is fractured, automatic and schizophrenic. Through a serial production of work both artists attempt a form of cultural reclamation through visual indulgence.

A collection of Austin’s Spare parts, with an introduction to malignant relatives, piss pot pilgrims and backward looking, inside down, somnambulant truck drivers, driven to dribbling over hermetic trousers and incontinent poetry, they wouldn’t know a dumb ting if it sat up and ate ‘em (starving fools that they are).
