01 September to 11 October

Stephen French brings his exhibition 'hyperkulturemia' to the red gallery here at Resipole Studios. A vibrant and stimulating collection of new works from Stephen, ranging from depictions of Japanese Samurai and their highly decorative 'cuirasses', or armour, to large scale paintings based on the woodcuts of the German Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer.

'Hyperkulturemia' is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art.

Stephen French is a Dundee and Kilchoan based artist who likes to keep his work eclectic and to stay open to new directions, so subjects and media are always morphing. Yet his technique, palette and composition remain consistent. He enjoys combining traditional painting skills with a subversive take on artists' clichés but with the overall imperative of visual decoration.
