Wilkinson gallery London exhibition
For his latest show at Wilkinson in east London, Shaw returns to familiar territory with a series of Humbrol Enamel paintings of carved tree trunks and bollards arranged like a magical Stone Henge ring. It's curious to think that this material normally coats toy trains, but Shaw was first inspired when he learnt that a group of children had killed another child with Humbrol Enamel. For Last Days of Belief, makes a clear nod to the Stations of the Cross and the Christian implications of his work. Look out for the modest subtitles below each painting which are lyrics taken from a song released in 1980.
Catch George Shaw's eerie brand of everyday gravitas at this unearthly new contemporary art exhibition in London's Wilkinson Gallery.
