LAST CHANCE: FRANCIS UPRITCHARD:ECHO

29 September - 08 October 2011

Attending? Yes | No | Maybe

Central to the exhibit is the human figure and a return to materials explored previously in Upritchard’s work. The figures have hollow eyes, so the portal to the individual, to a personal psychology, is sealed off. Upritchard has set a stage for archetypes. The iconic martyr staggers across the landscape of 'Echo Cabinet', and 'Breath' is a kind of psychedelic Jesus, in character with beard and prosaic expression. There are other archetypes too: 'The Misanthrope', the vilified and cruel beast, 'Mervyn' the fool, 'John' the knowing jester.
