Pace Cartoon Art

Yesterday Pace London in Lexingtom Street opened a group show with a thought-provoking title: Everything falls faster than an anvil, which runs until 18 June. According to O’Donnells Laws of Cartoon Motion (says the blurb) a falling anvil will always land directly upon a character's head, regardless of the time gap between the body and the anvil's respective drop. So much for the humour of the title. Carl Ostendarp designed the wall-to-ceiling drip murals that form a backdrop to the exhibits, which explore the influence of the cartoon on contemporary art (CLICK). The red sculpture is Claes Oldenburg's Geometric Mouse (1971). The acrylic painting below is John Wesley's Untitled (2011-2012).
