Pat Brassington‘s work presents puzzles for the viewer and pushes us to the boundaries where ideas and images collide. The fantastic, the uncanny, the fetishistic and the unbelievable are recurring themes. Often they cohere around the female body and sexuality. Sometimes the conceptual content is dark, exploring the underbelly of social relations; at other times it is light and humorous.
Anne Marsh engages with the artist and her work in an attempt to extrapolate on some of these ideas.
