The exhibition subtly focuses on subliminal unrest with its perverse and corrosive influence has become an ever present part of our daily lives. Pieces such as 'The lovers', 'War Horse', 'Kaiser chief', 'Veiled Threat'... all have at their core, some form of dystopian angst, which subtly percolates from within, to lie just beneath the shiny skin... like Snow White's 'poisoned apple'. For all the works superficial beauty, there is an ever present implication of a darkness lurking just beneath the glossy surface... an allegory of the times in which we live.... As the great Spike Milligan once said, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... Get it out with Optrex”.
Dangerous Minds Artists' work operates on a multiplicity of levels. Most significantly a pure aesthetic is paramount, but this is always accompanied by associated implications and ambiguities. Duality is an ever present touchstone in their/our work... symbolism, hidden messages, codification, sigils and cyphers. If you have a burning desire to have your world to be made beautifully strange at the same time as strangely beautiful, Dangerous Minds Artists are your perfect match.
Be prepared to dip your toes into a complex narrative that injects diametrically opposed notions into vibrant, thought provoking work.
