Paul Stolper Gallery is proud to present Shaun Doyle and Mally Mallinson's Mum Man an exhibition of bronze and mixed media sculptures, prints and works on paper that offer an unfettered account of contemporary Britain.
For nearly 10 years, Doyle and Mallinson have incorporated humour and cynicism into their work, censuring behaviours and values associated with contemporary society that they consider untrustworthy, suspect or corrupt.
The title Mum Man comes from a friend of the artists' who addressed everyone as 'man', ending every sentence with the word. The title was chosen as it not only suggests a nickname for early hominids like 'upright man' but also as it references a change in the social role for men. Doyle and Mallinson's first solo exhibition at the gallery is a satirical account of the British experience, with three distinct, yet coherent groups of work; the Handyman bronzes, the Ecce Homo works, and the Wendy Squats.
