The publication includes an essay by writer Will Self and features works from both his recent show at New Art Projects, London titled ‘My Animal Nature’ and also his show with us at SPRING/BREAK Art Fair in Los Angeles. The works in this publication boasts Charles Williams’ signature style and the idea of all of the work existing in a parallel or alternative world… a dreamscape, or somewhere yet more studiedly oblique. Williams is a founder member of the notorious Stuckist art movement. Williams’ new works try to explain animals through their relationships with us, exploring the belief that our encounters with them are always doomed to be one-sided and that the relationships are metaphorical, allegorical and analogical. This change of direction stems from feeling the need to create a presence without telling a story about the cultural web which surrounds human beings or at least escapes it; relating to class, wealth and privilege. Through the paintings, Williams questions whether he can escape this cultural web and how this new world would look.
