Beautiful Women With Depression

Andrew Gilmore

Preview: Friday 23 October, 19.00 - 21.00
Wrap party: Friday 6 November, 19.00 – 21.00, performance at 20.00

The exhibition is about contrasts. You see an attractive woman strolling through town, wearing designer clothes you automatically assumed she has everything you want: status and wealth and happiness. It's often far from the truth.
Western culture blows up our superficial side. Were all superficial- its our instinct when it comes to appearance. It's down to the individual to cognitize that.
In the paintings glossy magazine cuttings are set next to scribbles and crude brush strokes. I find mass media imagery as beguiling as I do poisonous. The collage and other materials make up narratives. Some are intentional others are accidental.
