Christopher's Epoch

Christopher Campbell - The Two Dirty Stags of Chingford (2007)StART SPACE at 150 Columbia Road, London, recently opened an exhibition of paintings by Christopher Campbell - Epoch -, which continues until 3 June 2007. "Epoch is a series of paintings that follow a theme of ambiguous storytelling." (Translation: the artist can't tell a clear story.) "They depict England awash in a pseudo apocalyptic environment." What's "pseudo" about England's apocalyptic environment? It's one disaster after another. Today the Scots are awash with sewage around the Firth of Forth (CLICK). Blurb aside, Christopher Campbell is a talented artist, and his wild animals in suburban settings are eerie.
