Very Dark: George Morton Clark
“I aim for my work to be uncomfortable for you to look at, yet beautiful at the same time. A bit of a headf*ck really.” Beautiful Crime and Imitate Modern launched the solo show of contemporary painter, George Morton-Clark in February of this year. Entitled ‘The Devil’s Cabinet,’ the show looked at society’s ability to find it easier to be bad than good, through Morton-Clark’s incredible ability to paint both abstract and photo-realist, often in the same painting.
George Morton-Clark scrutinised “selfie” culture in this show and takes the perspective that amidst all of our material obsessions, we have reached the height of our society’s narcissism – thus we have resorted back to our primeval state – reflected through our behaviour.
