Need I remind you New Yorkers to go see Peter Stichbury’s “Superfluous Man” exhibition at Tracy Williams (West 23 Street) from November 8 to December 22? He rules.
New Zealand rendered in paint, from my brother Ben’s New Zealand series. Coming soon to a t-shirt near you.
Inspired by natural and unnatural disasters, personal fiascos and the never-ending stream of bad news coming in from the media, the world inside my paintings has been turned (sometimes literally) upside down. The ground has crumbled underneath them and the sky is falling. In the wake of this, my created world bands together to come up with coping plans. This lets me explore ideas of anxiety and vulnerability, community, and the illusions of safety. I’m fascinated by the resilience of life.
