Better & Better by Norman O’Flynn

Better & Better by Norman O’Flynn

BETTER & BETTER, Norman O’Flynn’s anticipated 2017 solo exhibition, opens at the Worldart gallery on 4 May. The works, in his characteristic pop art style, explore popular culture and our place in it while the world is changing faster than ever before.

Titled BETTER & BETTER, this exhibition continues O Flynn’s narrative of what pop art means today. Modern consumerism is so rife that consumers have become the product – fuelled by the digital world, consumers aim to project themselves as the ultimate desirable entity.

The human physique is both platform and subject in these portraits which tell the story of chaos, time and self-obsession. Our spirituality is now central to popular culture where humans play God and God is Superman. Confusion reigns yet we are glorified.

His subjects are covered in tattoos illustrating our want to explain who we are and our obsession to be different. The portraits are busy and crowded, showing the explosion of knowledge that the digital age brought. Everything is easily accessible and easy to consume: life is better and better – or is it?

BETTER & BETTER will run from 4 – 25 May 2017
