NEW WORKS BY ANDREW FAIRCLOUGH
31 March - 11 April 2017
China Heights Gallery - Sydney, Australia.
My first solo exhibition Total Control features a collection of mixed media works on wood-panel, combining illustrative portraiture, painting and printmaking.
The works explore themes of introspection, confusion, duality and impulse control viewed through the dead-gaze of technological distraction and the mesmerising flow of infinite information that is everywhere and nowhere at once.
Inspired by dystopian fiction, mid-century illustration and low-brow comics, the resulting body of work constructs an uneasy yet hopeful atmosphere awash with abstract textural explorations and haphazard experiments.

Dangerfork are a Melbourne based Screenprinter focussed on fine quality art and poster printing who were looking for a new identity that reflected their passion for the craft and close attention to detail.
We developed a brand narrative with a new tagline 'The Devil's In The Detail'; a reference to the Dangerfork name, approach and dark undercurrent of their street-art roots.
From there we crafted the DF monogram with a nod to devils tails and pitchforks before working up into primary and secondary marques that create a modern-heritage feel and allow for flexible usage on applications such as print-collateral, rubber stamps, packaging, product seal stickers and embossing.
Theory were looking to refresh the brand with a new identity incorporating an eye icon to reflect the brands subversive attitude and grassroots following.
We developed a suite of wordmarks with a simple eye icon that allow for flexible usage across a broad range of applications, from skate decks and tee-shirts, to digital marketing and retail packaging.
