Insects images are provoking and provocative: dripping as much with sensitivity and gravitas as they are with sex and death. Moreover, they are a window onto the mind of the frustrated modern male: boiling over with unkempt aggression and sexuality, but yearning somehow for a higher moral purpose than the gradual accumulation of acceptance.
Paul Insect's refined interpretation of visceral subject matter has
thrust him towards fame in the past year, with a noted collector
absorbing his entire? ‘Bullion’ exhibition. Equally, Paul’s work has
evolved considerably. Victorian graphics have been replaced by Dada-ist
collages fusing adolescence, aggression, and
rough-around-more-than-just-the-edges pornography. These motifs are
tempered by a joyous use of colour and an ambitious style.
