PETE FOWLER – THE NEEDLE AND THE DAMAGE DONE
Beach London is delighted to present a new solo exhibition by London-based artist Pete Fowler.
Known for his psychedelia-inspired character design, Fowler’s work has, over the years, taken to a wide variety of media – most notably Toy designs, large-scale acrylic paintings, and music videos for the likes of the Horrors and Super Furry Animals.
‘The Needle and The Damage Done’ is a body of new and original cross-stitch embroidery made during 2013. Colourful and psychedelic pieces, featuring Fowler’s traditionally outlandish juxtapostion of subject matter; Landscapes, UFO’s, Sailors, Roadies, Synths and Owls eschew the craft-like subject matter one wouldnormally associate with the medium.
The show’s title is a light-hearted comparison between the zeal with which Fowler took to the medium, and Neil Young’s 1972 track of the same name about his bands’ heroin abuse.
For a catalogue of available artwork, please contact Charlie@beachlondon.co.uk.
There will be an opening party of the exhibition on Thursday, August 1st, 2013.
The Exhibition will run until September 1st 2013.
