AboutCLUSTERBOMB showcase new work of five figurative artists, John Brown, Alex Gibbs, Jamie Kinroy, Bobby Nixon and and Matt Swan, who share a similar concern for the excessive clustering of imagery, a predilection for information overload and a penchant for extreme cut n' paste.
CLUSTERBOMB explodes conservative image making in favour of the aesthetics of maximilism.
CLUSTERBOMB will cluster the everyday into new shapes, forms, meanings and landscapes.
