I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Dargan creates paintings and drawings that express the alienation and dissatisfaction experienced in contemporary daily life. Isolated middle-income men are depicted in stark and often sinister environments; empty interiors illuminated by a solitary lamp, windswept landscapes, dirty streets, the walls daubed with political graffiti or scenes which could be taken from frames of Zapruder's home movie. Full of antagonism, Dargan's work comments on the imbalance of contemporary power systems.
