Simon MacEwan: All that is solid melts into air - Art Collector

Simon MacEwan, Watcher, 2012. Watercolour on paper, 56 x 76cm

Primal fear meets post-industrial anxiety in Simon MacEwan's exhibition ‘all that is solid melts into air’. Meticulously rendered owls survey the viewer, their blank golden eyes resisting the viewer's returned gaze. A map of the moon's hidden face charts a land we will never see. A strange beguiling crystal grows under the ruined Chernobyl reactor. Exploring the way in which the uncanny intersects with the uncertainty of late-capitalism, these paintings and sculptures suggest that while we no longer believe in monsters, we may still be afraid of the dark.
