PAT BRASSINGTON, ARC ONE GALLERY

PAT BRASSINGTON’S PHOTOGRAPHS ARE BOTH CHARMING AND MENACING AT THE SAME TIME. THEY ROUSE A SENSE OF DISQUIET AS THEY SUBTLY AND HUMOROUSLY SCRATCH AT THE UNDERBELLY OF THE HUMAN CONDITION. IN HER UNIQUE WAY, BRASSINGTON BLURS THE BOUNDARIES OF THE REAL AND IMAGINED, STRIPPING PHOTOGRAPHY OF ITS AUTHORITY, BESTOWING IT INSTEAD WITH THE LOGIC OF DREAM OR FANTASY…

I WENT TO SEE A PANEL AT ACCA DURING HER RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION REBOURS EARLIER THIS YEAR. THERE ARE NOT MANY ARTISTS WHO CAN INSPIRE SUCH A LEVEL OF DEBATE AMONGST LEARNED ART CRITCS, PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SEX EXPERTS, COMPLEX STUFF…..
