These recent drawings combine Neal Fox’s visionary depictions of the debauched and iconoclastic characters whose ideas have helped shape our collective consciousness with vivid colours that enhance the fantastical and psychedelic atmosphere of the images. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of the mythology of pop and consumer culture, Fox’s new drawings are infused with layers of narrative and populated by a vast range of celebrities, lunatics, and geniuses.
In these imagined landscapes Captain Beefheart sells a vacuum cleaner to Aldous Huxley at the Doors of Perception, while elsewhere Jesus is crucified on a McDonald’s sign and popular culture comes to resemble a neon nightmare. We present an exhibition of re-imagined reality and collaged dreams, the familiar made unfamiliar and strange.
