Rayson, David, 2009, Show, Exhibition or Event, The Everyday Fantastic
|Abstract or Description:||
The Everyday Fantastic was a major solo exhibition at Marlborough Fine Art, London, 2009. A book was published to coincide with the exhibition: The Everyday Fantastic, with 100 full-colour illustrations and an essay by David Rayson.
Research drew from the graphic works of historical artists including Francisco de Goya, George Grosz, Otto Dix and works from the Prinzhorn collection, alongside contemporary artists such as Raymond Pettibon and Mike Diana. The exhibition, book and associated guest lectures celebrated the formal possibilities of storytelling, exploring explicit figuration, surrealistic visions and psychological abstractions. The domestic scale and use of modest materials such as ink-pens echoed the works’ overarching themes of the vernacular and the ‘homegrown’.
