Conor Harrington at The Outsiders, London
A WHOLE Lot of Trouble for a Little Bit of Win at The Outsiders, London, features Conor Harrington’s coveted Morning Glory miniatures. The Irish artist paints the studies daily upon arriving at his studio to catalyse the creative process.
Their content veers from details within, and examinations of, forthcoming paintings to abstract, ethereal portraits featuring the pantheon of characters featuring in his latest geo-political ballad.
Created using oils and spray paint on canvas board, each Morning Glory is attributed a date and presented in a box frame without glass. They measure approximately 40cm high by 30cm wide without the frame.
Where Harrington’s smash-hit 2012 exhibition Dead Meat concerned the decadent collapse of the European haut-bourgeoisie, his latest paintings (shown at Lazarides’ Bedlam off-site spectacular) refer specifically to the rise of new superpowers.
The exhibition is open to the public from February 1 to February 24, 2013.
Times: Monday to Saturday 11am – 7pm.
The Outsiders, 8 Greek Street, Soho, London, W1D 4DG
