GILBERT & GEORGE

THE JACK FREAK PICTURES

Michael Bracewell

 

“London – cathedral of black bones… where streets glint, grudgingly, like shabby coins, and, much pummelled, the body’s putty sags..”
Nigel Henderson

 

Epic and intent, twilit, garish, eerie, manic and brash; a swarming maelstrom of pattern, image, detail and colour, yet filled with a profound and mysterious stillness, the ‘Jack Freak Pictures’ comprise the single largest group of pictures that Gilbert & George have ever made. It is a monumental presentation of works, at once thematically episodic, confluent in motif and temper, and densely layered with emotional meaning.
