(exhibition) “Through my work I explore the confines of discourse of media that surrounds us in every day life. The scenarios I create establishes a dream-like surreal quality. They suggest notions of calmness, safety and one hand upset and discomfort. In my paintings I re-contextualise the already established repertoire of visual culture and create symbolic reality as opposed to virtual reality.”
It’s October 1978. Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town. The Man in The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks the 5 miles from his wee white cottage to town and back again and the marvels that he meets along the way. It’s a charming encounter - an ageing man still with a boundless enthusiasm for life. Hilariously funny, tender and at times downright daft, The Man in The woman’s Shoes, will leave you uplifted and in love with life again.
