Guadalupe & Other Hallucinations - Exhibition Opening.March 23, 2017, 6:00pmCotton Court Gallery, Waring StreetAn exhibition of 12 new linocut prints by artist Jonathan Brennan based on the book 'Guadalupe & Other Hallucinations' by the artist's brother.
BACKGROUND In 2016, my brother Dylan – a poet, academic and long-term Mexico City resident – presented me with a series of non-fiction chronicles of his early days travelling all over the country. Familiar with my linocuts and monotypes, he asked to make images based on his words. I had total freedom to create anything I wanted, as long as there was more or less an equal distribution of images throughout the collection of texts.
INSPIRATION Having been to Mexico on two occasions, a Spanish speaker and familiar with Mexican and South American literature, the text triggered mental images from the short stories of Rulfo and Borges, Huichol and Zapoteca folk art, Christian iconography and Mexico’s special take on Christianity in general e.g. the Day of the Dead, the cult of La Santa Muerte, etc.
