Andy Vella - Penile Dementia

This is a new exhibition at Unit 03 in Wellington Road, Brighton. It features the work of Andy Vella.

"Andy Vella's huge canvass depict grumpy, aging, deformed nudes; the paintings' harsh lines reduce their subjects to a stark graphic horror directed at their own nakedness. Andy's fascination with the grotesque stems from watching monkeys masturbating at Longleat and seeing old men playing pocket billiards whilst waiting for the bus."

I haven't seen the pictures in the flesh yet but from the web site they look quite unsettling. Grotesque black and white figures with a bit of a willy obsession going on. It is on until 02 Dec.
