VANDAL WITH CARE is a satirical view of contemporary consumerism and the consumption of things, the work is a direct reflection of our appetite for junk food, TV, technology, clothing and literature, where designed obsolescence is part of our culture and readily accepted. There is a concentration on food iconology which is a direct metaphor to our ravenous consumption of things with no substance or sustenance. A reminder that we need to feed our souls as well as our stomachs.
CHARLIE McFARLEY’s work is the perfect example of the artist working as a vandal. Disrupting the wonderful world of children’s cartoon art and forcing the viewer into a landscape of intricately painted nightmares and sculptures that seem to smile back at you… Truly visceral in their impact the artwork reveals the troubled vision of adult life seen through a child’s eye.
TACOT is an enigma in the modern art scene, moving seamlessly through genres and concepts, connecting artworks to convey a strong message to raise questions and spark the imagination of the viewer. Never one to shy from a challenging topic expect a smack in the face and two fingers up to convention and modern culture.
