ANIMAL MOTHER BOSTON 2013 / by Thomas Buildmore

On view through March 30th, 2013

Lot F gallery is proud to present “ANIMAL MOTHER” Recent works by Thomas Buildmore. In his first Boston solo show, this new body of work is in line with what viewers have seen from the artist in the past; the depiction of a dark world of pop culture. Drawing parallels between popular media, Fine art, advertising, and war, “Media and pop culture have formed an Army to wage all out war upon us, a harsh physiological environment’ says Buildmore. Rather than being defeated by it, Thomas Buildmore wants to thrive in it.

Imagery of familiar characters are twisted and augmented to create something amusingly disturbing. Multiple 10″ x 10″ paintings arranged together become a sort of platoon, alone they are small, but together as a group they become a large powerful statement. Buildmore’s larger works are full of semiotic symbols, iconic references and familiar cartoon characters. Drawing from the fine art world, cable television, and the Internet, In this new body of work the Artist investigates a wide rage of media including found objects, sculpture, photography, and paint to explore these complex ideas about our world.

“This is My war, there are many like it but this one is mine! Without it I am Nothing, Without me it is Nothing” -ANIMAL MOTHER “
