Glen Baxter Flowers

British artist Glen Baxter is renowned for a unique style of social surrealism in which familiar subjects from popular culture are combined with an absurdist message.

In this exhibition of works on paper, Baxter explores a world of illustrated characters engaged in baffled contemplation of modern art and philosophy. Beginning with his first publications of the 1970s, Baxter developed a distinctive drawing style similar to that of mid-twentieth century British comic books, combining images and text using the format of a single cell graphic panel. Loosely deriving material from diverse sources such as pulp fiction, adventure stories, ‘foodie-ism’, and iconic works of art, Baxter’s surreal scenarios form a playful critique of society and culture.
