In today's world of infinite information, it is increasingly easy to get lost in a tech-induced spiral and fall into a "tech dead-gaze." Andrew Fairclough's most recent exhibition 'Total Control' at China Heights in Surrey Hill, Australia uses pop art graphics to explore this concept further. This approach is used to express themes of introspection and impulse control.
Inspired by dystopian fiction, his work has an intensity one can find relatable and thought-provoking, especially as a Millennial. In the flow of technology-induced distraction, the viewer can almost see the boundless access to information passing before the subjects' eyes. As a generational self-reflection, Fairclough's work is effective in being "uneasy, yet hopeful."
