Richard Grayson

Our new exhibition is a collection of work by the artist Richard Grayson.

Richard Grayson’s work is energised by the kind of cultural collisions that make contemporary life exciting. Inspired by the correlation of apparently unconnected cultural artifacts and phenomena, Grayson investigates the importance of language and narrative in how we comprehend the world. Through the use of playful or decorative forms, Grayson is able to engage his audience with complex and difficult ideas. We are encouraged to participate in a critical and perhaps subversive view of humanity that encompasses astrology, religion, politics, the global economy and extra-terrestrial life. As a retrospective of his work fromthe past five years, the exhibition brings together prints, drawings and films by Grayson for the first time.

Throughout the season you can contribute to this blog online or live in the gallery.

The exhibition continues until 14 March 2010.

  1. There's a great underlying stream of humour running through this work. I've only seen Richard's film work before, so its great to see a range of media brought together, allowing the audience to make their own connections.

  2. A GREAT EXHIBITION. I HAD A REALLY GOOD TIME ON THE HAY BALES. REALLY LIKED THE MUSIC NEXT DOOR BUT ISSUES WUTH THE CAMERA MAN. I LIKED THE WORDS IN SPIRALS; MY FAVOURITE ONE WAS THE BIG ONE ON THE WALL IN BIG RED LETTERS THE BEST. BECAUSE IT WAS EASIEST TO READ. ALSO I LIKED THE GUY TALKING ABOUT SONG AND HOW IT CAN BRING TEARS. NELL FLORA BRECKENRIDGEAGED 7
