Abstract (English)

"The Big Foldy Painting of Death is an expansive artwork created on a large scroll of canvas that will span the circumference of the gallery space. A project initiated in 2011, Ian Forbes’ painting is a narrative of apocalyptic doom and ecstatic rebirth. Characters appear throughout the painting occasionally musing, via comic speech bubbles and scrawled text, on the process and practice of contemporary visual art or purposely shifting ideas and concepts into absurdity. This pragmatic approach wrestles with critical art practices through the inclusion of high and low art forms: a variety of techniques are employed to depict futuristic structures and psychedelic creatures emerging from planes of colours, abstraction and texture." -- Publisher's website.
