Finally, a chance to combine Darwin, Marat, mermaids, taxidermy, Star Wars, Poussin, Rilke and Japanese death poetry in a single essay. Let me explain. A talented artist friend, Kelly McCallum, is having a solo show at Shizaru Gallery in Mayfair. Simon, the gallery director, was kind enough to hire me to write a short piece for inclusion in the catalogue, and thus was born Plumage and Paradise : Art and the Catalysis of Personal Narrative.
Now, thanks to the wonder of the internet, you, too, can own and enjoy a fine copy of this timeless piece of cultural analysis. This lovingly hand-crafted pdf is guaranteed to bring moments of reflective happiness to any enquiring mind. It also includes photographs of Kelly’s work, to give you an idea of what I’m actually talking about. Just click here or on the image below to download.
Better still – and I highly recommend this – get down to the gallery to see the exhibition. You can find full details on Shizaru’s website, but in summary: Plumage and Paradise, 15 September – 29 October 2011, Shizaru Gallery, 112 Mount Street, London, W1K 2TU, UK.
