Degenerates

12 May

12 degenerates

I’m working on a new drawing installation for a Commensalis group show at Fringe Arts Bath opening on May the 23rd. It’s based on the concept of ‘Degenerate Art’ which the Nazis used to discredit many artists in the early 20th century. This work portrays artists whose political views, subject matter and/or techniques would be criticised as degenerate by the Nazis now. Although I am using some paint, I still consider these to be drawings because I am slapping a bit of acrylic colour on with my fingers and bits of rag, to colour in the larger areas. The detail is being drawn with charcoal and oil bars.
