Angel Dust - Intermedia Gallery, Glasgow

Press Release

Power mad artists John Beagles (born 1970, thick black hair, poor teeth, pigeon feet) and Graham Ramsay (born 1968 thick matted body hair, shaky teeth, bow legs) have collaborated with a platoon of local and international artists. Each collaboration has taken a slightly different path, resulting in an engaging assortment of paintings, drawings, cartoon strips and sculptures.

 

Fiona Robertson has produced a teeming vision of apocalyptic horror, crammed with grotesque, humorous depictions of all manner of beasts and man.


Australian artists Kate Daw and Stewart Russell’s delightfully florid, embellished painting heralds ‘The End Of Dog.’


Mick Peter (1974 - ?) presents a series of small sculptural dioramas depicting outlandish scenes of contemporary Glaswegian life - Hieronymous Bosch assaulted by the Haghill Kappa Legions.


Jim Ward’s beautifully painted triptych portrait, prophesises a most terrifying glimpse of the future. Here comes the smiling mortician.


Alan Michael is no stranger to unusual cominglings.


Having sold his soul to the devil in return for the gift of draughtsmanship, Dan Willson (1987 - ?) is back with a vengeance plus a new set of darkly comic cartoon strips.


Maureen Mackenzie’s twisted consumer p
roduct challenge is not be tried at home.


Belgium’s finest painter James Ensor (1860 - 1949) may be long dead, but he has made contact so that he may paint again through the living bodies of others.
