Supersingular opens with a bang!

Added on by David Caines.

Thanks to everyone came along to the opening of the exhibition Supersingular last night in Stoke Newington. BHVU was packed and the beer ran out. The highlight of the evening had to be a fantastic set of French pop classics by the wonderful  SURI ET LES COPAINS. Watch them perform Les Cactus at last night's opening here! Thanks to everyone who helped, especially Charlotte Lindsay from BHVU. Don't miss the exhibition which is open each weekend for the next month from 12-6pm.

More about David's paintings...

Added on by David Caines.

David's figurative paintings show us real people, but don't show us the real world. It's a carefully rearranged world of anxious encounters and deviant ritual aiming to invoke feelings of foreboding and melancholy in us.

The pictures sit outside of a recognisable time-frame and often represent unlikely groups of curious and seemingly disparate characters (a shaman, a figure wrapped in polythene, masked children, contortionists). Their intentions are ambiguous. Are they the welcoming committee or the death squad? Entertainers or sorcerers? It is left up to us to conjure the narrative.

Other pictures suggest a fundamentally ridiculous relationship between humans and simple machinery (a woman who seems to have coalesced with her sewing machine, a headless man being led around by a wheelbarrow).

"I heard someone describe David's work as poignant and I think that’s true… without wanting to get too deep, it seems like a comment on the human condition, that in the end we’re all alone.” Simone Pereira Hind, critic
