In many ways RePsycho : RePunk reflects Iain’s previous work depicting the attitude from the Punk era but with a Modern and environmental distortion, 40 years later.

About

This exhibition by Artist Iain Mckell shows 16 colour monographs of an all women neo-native performance tribe living in Tottenham – The RePsychos. Alongside this is an installation of 34 Black and white monographs titled Re-Punk which is a series of unseen monographs from Weymouth and London during the late 70s and early 80s.

Over a lifetime career in between other styles of work he has created a trilogy using the same craft practice and a central aesthetic theme involving a canvas backdrop in an open air / ambient studio with natural light. First the New Romantics with a mottled grey, second the New Gypsies with a turquoise green and now the final in the triptych, the Re-Psychos with a pastel pink.

Iain Mckell through this process aims to portray a celebration of what he finds beautiful. This has evolved out of Iain’s innovative ability to recognise talented individuals and creative qualities inside communities who share a collective consciousness. Through his own eye he enables himself as a portal through the lens into the other worlds of these individuals to whom he feels connected with.
