"On the walls, the work of Brian Adam Douglas (also known as "Elbow-Toe") thrills. His gorgeous collages are so papery and textural, colourful and luminous that they look like vibrant, painterly Old Masters."-- Ken Russell, The London Times Paper Cuts commemorates Brian Adam Douglas' first solo show in the UK at the Warrington Museum of Art. In this exhibition, the Brooklyn based artist aims to portray the animated ambivalence of parenting through his iconic work. "In these paintings I am addressing fears (loss of individuation as well as the proverbial unknown), the strengthening of bonds in times of crisis, the issues of trying to become a parent later in life and the wisdom gained through the process of painting...Each brushstroke is selected for its colour, value and texture..." Douglas' stunning portraits provide an opportunity for both pensive contemplation and the appreciation of beauty in parenting. Complete with a biography, Interview, and insightful analysis by Marc Schiller, Sara Schiller and Rachael Farquharson, this book provides an immersive case study on this extraordinary artist.
