Pleased as Punch

Exhibition: Artist:

Adam De Ville | Watercolour | 14 x 18 inches

“So far, seventy rounds and only one knock out.”

Each painting is part of a series exploring our attitudes towards ageing and modernity.

The two central recurring characters are doing their best with what they have in our cost of living crisis. An exchange between the viewer and the viewed is suggested: are we laughing at them or with them in their bitter sweet predicament? Are they sharing with us a wry yet sympathetic knowingness? Or maybe they know something we don’t or often forget? We all wear masks. Theirs are just from the reduced section at Woolworths.

Each work is in some way homage to my grandparents.

We do offer the Own Art Scheme to purchase artwork. At 0% APR, this is payable in equal instalments over 10 months. Please contact the Gallery for more information.
