Andrew Fairclough’s “Total Control” Collection—an Abstract Exploration of Comic Art Nostalgia

“Total Control” is a collection of mixed media art, combining illustrative portraiture, painting and printmaking by talented illustrator Andrew Fairclough.

My first solo exhibition Total Control features a collection of mixed media works on wood-panel, combining illustrative portraiture, painting and printmaking.

The works explore themes of introspection, confusion, duality and impulse control viewed through the dead-gaze of technological distraction and the mesmerising flow of infinite information that is everywhere and nowhere at once.

Inspired by dystopian fiction, mid-century illustration and low-brow comics, the resulting body of work constructs an uneasy yet hopeful atmosphere awash with abstract textural explorations and haphazard experiments.
