Victor Man: The Place I'm Coming From
In his first major solo exhibition of painting assemblages and wall drawings, Victor Man brings together disparate references to the place he is coming from, and the physical and mental isolation that implies. Man’s work is scarred by traces of memory, and fragmentation, both geographical and ideological. Obscure and tangential links in subject matter come together to create a new narrative. All the images are captured and recycled so that his own changing world cannot disappear. Brought together out of context each image reformulates itself to create as Man describes it, a “terrain of turbulence. Where truth becomes a matter of clues."
