Shannon Peel is portray pop-culture iconography and on the identical time I think foolish even writing that. Mayhe it is lazy or simply kind of off, as a result of you do not truly see anything else specifically you could have noticed at the small screen television or in movie or in cartoons in his paintings. There are characters in those splendidly composed blends of still-life and summary patterns, and Peel is in a position to make an homage to one of the previous Masters with out giving up his personal identification. However what Peel does so neatly, and why I convey up the pop thought right here, is create a repitition in his works that make you suppose you’re looking into the rhythmic patterns of day-to-day lifestyles. How we see, what we see, how we see what we see.
In House Slice, his new solo display at Outpost in Copenhagen that is a part of the respected V1 gallery circle of relatives, those daring works on a stark white backdrop are virtually like TV’s within the window. They let us know such a lot about what we’re seeing on the planet and virtually not anything feels relatable. It is only a pulse. It is only a tough hum. And there’s good looks in that. —Evan Pricco
