The Art Circus See more on The Art Circus

by Sam Branton

Sam Branton produces obscure allegories that seem equally informed by a celebration of excesses, as of moral repulsion. In Branton we catch a glimpse of the draughtsman as duplicitous moralist, giving a surprisingly cute face to the vice and corruption of humanity.
