Interview of the artist with Marco Livingstone


Exhibition: 26 June to 25 July 2004, Fridays to Sundays, 1 to 6 pm
at the Centre of Attention, 15 Cotton's Gardens, London E2 8DN

Based in London, the House of O'Dwyer produces one series of paintings each year and has been doing so since 2000.

This year, the House of O'Dwyer continues to question art world assumptions and artists delusions and the sheer banality of the artist's endeavour, while at the same time mining a deeper seam of psycho sexual drama, and combining both of these with a baroque povera aesthetic (defined by a marshalling of found materials).

Horror, philosophy, film, performance and science combine with notions of grandeur, corruption, superficiality, clique, and joyless chore to create…

Wow wee, such an ambitious endeavour, how does he pack it all in? Come judge for yourself…

A catalogue showing work from this and the previous series accompanied by an interview of the artist with Marco Livingstone is available from the gallery or from the website by clicking on this.
