Simon Lee Gallery Jim Shaw
Jim Shaw

12th Feb - 26th Mar 2013

The imagery in this exhibition is a kaleidoscope of superheroes, Blakean mysticism and utopian idylls, demonstrating Shaw’s unique style of post-modern eclecticism, where references to Sigmund Freud and Dr Seuss are happily juxtaposed. The artist’s radically heterogeneous appropriation of iconography is matched by his equally nomadic approach to media. Oil paintings and pencil drawings are interspersed with sculptures and film, characteristic of an artist whose media have ranged from found thrift store paintings to monumental banners.
