Batty exhibits his highly complex large Triptych for the first time. A complex and highly detailed work from the concept of the internet being a Library with Sirens and security cameras, resulting in a fantastical spectacle akin to a modern response to Bosch's 'Garden of earthly delights'.

About

Batty’s work presents a highly innovative approach to oil painting on canvas, blurring the lines between fine art and graphic design and this is perhaps what appeals most to his audiences. The resulting paintings are a tapestry of modern life; chaos, hope, despair, aspirations, spirituality and the joy of everyday life all meet in a hyper dream-like world, deeply evocative and symbolic. ​

In this show Batty is exhibiting his highly complex large Triptych for the first time. This complex and highly detailed work stems from the idea of the internet being a Library with Sirens and security cameras and results in a fantastically weird spectacle of a painting. A modern response to Bosch's 'Garden of Earthly Delights'. 

The exhibition also presents works from the book, 'Psychedelic Paperchase', a funny and dark comic book featuring Batty's fantasy character Steven Picard. The publishing launch for 'Psychedelic Paperchase' is launching at our Preview evening on 25th January 2018.​​
