David Fullarton - How We Amuse Ourselves Between Onslaughts

David Fullarton - How We Amuse Ourselves Between Onslaughts

The Compound Gallery presents How We Amuse Ourselves Between Onslaughts, new work by David Fullarton. This current show is on display in the gallery from August 17th through October 6th, 2019.  

As we plummet towards the end of the second decade of the twenty first century the world has clearly gone insane. We are engulfed by avarice, intolerance and spectacular stupidity. Men who are too deluded to be left in charge of a functioning hair dryer now control entire countries and we are bombarded on a daily basis by unbearably grim news. Amidst this relentless onslaught of enveloping dread, we find ourselves under incessant pressure to be positive and improve ourselves– constantly goaded to live our best lives with a desperate joy in our hearts and a constant and inane grin permanently etched on our collective faces.Thankfully relief is at hand in the form of David Fullarton, a reliably dyspeptic malcontent whose mixed media drawings inject a little levity into this landscape of ludicrousness.Deploying uncompromising wit and dark humor to ruthlessly skewer contemporary neuroses, his work laughs in the face of looming disaster and ridicules the disappointing reality of diminished modern existence.

This exhibition represents the latest chapter in Mr. Fullarton’s ongoing chronicle of mania, melancholy, quiet desperation and bitter regret. And even if you find this droll dissection of the modern malaise amusing, please remember you are under no compunction to smile.
