Highlighted by Saatchi Online as ‘One to watch’, Super Future Kid boasts a wealth of potential in her young and exciting career.
The exhibition Psychedelic Tumbleweed presents a series of works in which the artist playfully manipulates the settings of the famous Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960's to explore themes of psychedelia and its influence upon mainstream culture of the era. Whilst the role of the cowboy in the Western movies of the 60's contradicted the popular perception of the hero’s morals and quickly became an iconic figure, the American counterculture of the period similarly broke through mainstream ideology, shaping the stance of many established political, social and spiritual sentiments, taking influence from psychedelic states of consciousness. The counterculture was an act of freedom and expression on the part of the youth exercising their views. In typical Super Future Kid fashion, this expression of youthfulness and freedom is conveyed both charmingly and effortlessly through the seemingly illogical juxtaposition of images. However, their manifestation highlights a significant bridging of the sub-cultural and the mainstream.
