LAZ Newcastle : CULT solo show 26th June 2009 - 1st August 2009
Manchester based Angel 41 makes his debut in Lazarides Newcastle basement with a series of mixed media paintings: urban scriptures, annotations and prophecies reflected through a deranged mirror, trapped under layers of paint. Working predominately with acrylic and emulsion, Angel 41 also uses mixed media in his work, sourcing and tearing snippets of throw away culture. At first glance, these relics of our time appear deeply sinister, but look closer and you will discover glimpses of pure emotion, dark humour and irony. Textured layers merge with flashes of typography and imagery, forming strange hybrids which reflect the modern urban landscapes that surround our lives.
