Michael Caines at the Peterborough Art Gallery, January 14 - March 6, 2011

WILD/TAME is an exhibition of disturbing yet beautifully drawn and painted contemporary POP/Surrealist works on panel, canvas and paper by Michael Caines.

Drawing from a variety of literary and art influences Caines sequential narratives use the idea of the figure in limbo – which works as a device for the artist to dislodge iconic characters from their conventionally understood habitats. This practice allows the artist to in his words, “rearrange and re-imagine the iconography.” (Michael Caines, Final Parsons School of Design, NYC, MFA Thesis text)

An exhibition catalogue accompanies this solo exhibition, with an by R.M. Vaughan and an interview by Thomas Butter.
