David Shrigley

David Shrigley's art can make grown men giggle. More worringly, he can also make insanity feel reassuring. Shrigley achieves this and much more through his endlessly imaginative observations and fantasies, in which his poetically sideways vision coaxes the world to undress and reveal its more unusual sides. He has the great ability to conspire with absurdity, collude with the poignant and make interesting the mundane. Who else could tackle subjects as diverse as losing your job, the sexual antics of a squirrel or the current state of child welfare with an equally appealing and extraordinary rigour?

David Shrigley has exhibited widely around the world. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Kunsthaus Zurich, Switzerland in 2003; Camden Arts Centre, London; FRAC Bretagne, France and UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA all in 2002. Recent group exhibitions include State of Play at the Serpentine Gallery, London; Britannia Works at Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Centre, Athens and Emotion Eins at Kunstverein in Frankfurt in 2004. David Shrigley regularly publishes books with Redstone Press.
