David Shrigley Drawings
& collect
Shrigley’s approach is reminiscent of that of children who expose both the funny and the terrible with a ruthless honesty and without prejudice. The artist focuses on the banalities and misunderstandings of our everyday life with a disarming, refreshing and not seldom black humour. Supposed (self-) certitudes find themselves suddenly on an unsure footing; the seemingly great turns out to be ludicrously small; the meaningful an empty illusion.
