In his second solo exhibition at Jessica Bradley Gallery, Jon Sasaki explores his interest in the pathos and humour of the banal.

This group exhibition of new British art diversely posits a schism between the Modern and Contemporary through the spectacle of redevelopment, urban shrines, sexuality and celebrity culture.

Many of the paintings make use of anthropomorphized animals or hybrid figures, derived from a number of different sources and references such as early fairy tale illustration, early advertising which relied on fairy tale, and 19th century illustrators like J.J. Grandville (admired by Walter Benjamin), whose use of dressed animals allowed him to skirt censorship restrictions and comment on current affairs....   [more]
