Thierry Bruet has painted and sculpted for over 35 years. His grand canvases shaped by a consciously classical slant and executed with traditional oil techniques, are witty, satirical and replete with carefully observed details. One side of him tends towards caricature and the grotesque, the other towards elegance and refinement.
Alex Jenkins is an illustrator and cartoonist based in the suburbs of South London. He graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2015 having studied an Illustration BA.
In his work, he explores satirical and critical subject matter through a distinctive and vivid style. Jenkins tries to avoid the pretense but wallow in humor, whilst touching on the absurd and surreal.
Building upon the foundation of forgotten ephemera, the meticulously crafted collage art of Human Wreckage transforms the simple into the sublime. By assembling images culled from varied historical frames, ranging from mid-century pop to antiquity, the works evoke an ethereal timelessness.
The unconventional juxtaposition of diverse subject matter simultaneously elevates the mundane and humbles the divine. It is at once violently innocent and joyously satirical.
