Exhibition: Idea of Man, part II at the Ilford Galerie, Kuala Lumpur

_8B13391 we'll face it together copy

I’m pleased to announce my first exhibition for 2018, and the second instalment in the long-running Idea of Man project – part II premieres together with the opening of the Ilford Galerie in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is a continuation of my exploration into the transience of modern life – human figures are anonymous, on the move, and in a built environment, there is separation but no individuality, and every situation is a familiar one which we have probably been in at one time or another. They could be us. The perspective is one of conscious observer rather than participant: a deliberate acknowledgement of human nature in self-awareness and our tendency to as “why me – and how am I any different?”.

The event starts a 1pm on Saturday, 20 January and features prints made by my usual partner in crime, Wesley Wong. Please come and say hi if you’re in town.

    Wonderful.

    I would love to be there but unfortunately won’t be to make it (for as you know, distance and new family arrangements have conspired against that).

    But I will be there in spirit and will follow your posts on the event.
