The exhibition of London-born artist Barry Reigate showcases extraordinary work in which familiar images and motifs are often incorporating elements of graffiti. A cartoon wolf populates several of the works – a talismanic figure that recalls the Three Little Pig fairy-tale and other hazy childhood memories. It is a typical Reigate motif. At times trapped below a nailed, latticed wooden structure, the wolf is imprisoned, disempowered. Atop, are geometric roundels and other shapes, symbols recalled from maths lessons, transformed into free-wheeling elements. These are complex, composite images that insist on multiple interpretations. It is a powerful range from eclectic and visually mind-blowing mix of symbolic pop imagery to geometrical design and multi-dimensional painterliness in Reigate’s oeuvre. Reigate has exhibited worldwide from Moscow to Verona. He was part of the “British Art Now” show at London’ Saatchi Gallery. This is his first solo show in the Netherlands and monograph published by Reflex.
