Wind Winder and Other Loners – PicPoc @ M16 Artspace

What it is about some art that gets me more than others often seems a mystery. I immediately engaged with Picpoc’s work from the introductory works. This set centres around that human experience of low visibility due to weather. The paint is put on to create the high energy world of wind and rain reducing the definition and distinction of cheerful colours when light is better.. I loved the sense of humans battling against the elements both to move and see. Near the end there are a few of motorcyclists out in bad weather. I worked on a motorbike in all seasons for a period and the way PicPoc nailed that experience excited me. The artist was at the gallery and it is always a treat to be able to tell an artist face to face how much you line their work and why.
