Little Green Street Gallery & Shane Morrissy
“Literal Paedophile Ring”
Shane Morrissy’s first solo exhibition.
“My work is prompted by a desire to subvert and decontextualized familiar images and ideas in order to create a thoughtful parody.”
Morrissy’s subject matter is dominated by ethical monsters, hypocrites and fallen heroes known to us through media exposure. These iconic figures have lasting connotations with the public; Morrissy intends to strip these ideas away. He combines the Icons with boring, absurd everyday imagery in order to distract from the ideas the viewer usually would associate with these characters. By taking the characters out of their historical and mythological context he redefines them. This allows the viewer to make a more honest and objective judgment of the subject. Morrissy intends to call into question our idea of right and wrong.
Working on a large scale Morrissy uses graphite and crayons to produce his work, a method offend looked upon as preparatory medium. This changes though as the work calls for it evident in his “Binary” Series which is produced with inkjet on paper.
Come see Morrissys large scale illustrations explore these controversial themes on Thursday the 22nd until Sunday the 25th.
The Exhibition Opening begins at 7pm and goes on until 11pm.
Entry is Free.
