Black Rat Projects, „Due Date“ Solo exhibition by Elbow Toe
Opening: 10th March

Under the name Elbow Toe, Brooklyn based artist Brian Adam Douglas has been pasting his distinctive woodcuts, stencil work, large-scale charcoal drawings and collages onto the walls of cities all around the world throughout the past decade. Now „Due Date“ is his first solo exhibition in the UK.
In Douglas’ work family life is a staged performance, animals are manifestations of human emotion. Intertextuality has become the foundation for the development of his distinctive style. The result is a sophisticated visual language where personal metaphors begin to communicate universal truths.
The work is divided into two groups: a set of images on panels, and a set of images on paper.
