David Shrigley

The drawings were familiar, thought provoking and made me smile, but what has stayed with me were the funny little cast figures. There were several cast pieces of domestic objects in various states of disrepair, but it was the litre stick figures which were most poignant. They seemed to have been modelled as an afterthought, casually, and were shut outside on their own. This spontaneous approach to modelling something which then goes through the labour intensive process of casting in bronze really struck a chord with me. They seemed quite melancholy. A physical sketch of some of the disquiet which often underlies Shrigleys‘ work.
