DESCRIPTION

An exhibition of new paintings and sculptures orbiting around the anxieties of life and death. Rush's overarching title for this new body of work - "Fuck You, Mr Death" - refers explicitly to the knowledge and certainty of mortality having a dual aspect in operating (potentially) both as a weight of despair and as a compelling mobilizing incentive. As such the characters and objects of the show find themselves in various states of composure and disarray, capitulation and defiance in the face of the inevitable.

Robert Rush (born 1978) trained at Central St Martins and the Royal Academy Schools. He was included in 2006 Bloomberg New Contemporaries and the 2008 John Moores 25 at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
