Bad Reception will showcase never before exhibited works, painted over the course of the past two years, by Will Barras. Featuring stunning paintings in acrylic, spraypaint, oil and ink on canvas and linen as well as a brand new limited edition hand pulled screen print by the artist.
Will Barras’ composition and fluid lines provide poignant detail in liquid abstraction. The subject matter is readily familiar, but captured in a manner that seems to jar time and space with psychedelic abstraction. It is his way of expressing the emotional movements of this labour. It is therapy and pleasure and necessity.
Shillinglaw describes, “Life is a struggle. For everyone. From the smallest insect to the greatest beast, we are determined by the success we seek, and how, in turn we measure that success. Each of us experiencing ups and downs. Peaks and troughs. Like a game of snakes and ladders."
The book features a foreword by Drew de Soto and is introducted by King Adz. The book is available now from the artist website.

This is a little mocumentary about the making of Crunchy, the infamous credit crunch monster monument of East London (located near Liverpool Street/close by the Financial District). Once Crunchy marked the rise of the credit crunch and the beginning of the recession - Now it's a monument dedicated to the victims of the financial crisis. In case anyone still wonders what it is made from, the secret is now revealed: It's not made from stone!
Babelgum have been allowed an exclusive preview of Hell's Half Acre, Lazarides Galleries' new off-site exhibition, which will be open for viewing from October 12 to 17 2010. The labyrinth of tunnels beneath London's Waterloo station have been converted into a large-scale evocation of Dante's Inferno. Visitors will explore a unique interpretation of the nine circles of hell through the vision of artists including Conor Harrington, Vhils, George Osodi, Antony Micallef, Doug Foster, Todd James, Paul Insect, Mark Jenkins, Boogie, Ian Francis, Polly Morgan, Jonathan Yeo and many more.
In total around 140 paintings were ﬁnally completed in the 101 days before the artist enforced his stringent quality control to tailor that down to the required number.
All of the works in the exhibition will signal the artists salient diversion to the medium of oil on canvas, resulting in work with subtle backgrounds, impasto and consummate depth. Influenced by past masters and late 1800’s expressionism, yet mixed with Vermin’s highly recognisable piercing letter form and dirty graffiti aesthetic. Some are hectic, others more meditative. no doubt a reflection of the constant ebb and flow of a schizophrenic mind.
The show opens at 6.30pm on the 9 October 2010 and will run until the 22 October 2010.
