As we mentioned about a month ago, Conor Harrington (interviewed) is set to open his solo show Dead Meat at Lazarides (Rathbone Place) on March 2nd. Taking his imagery in a new direction, the UK-based artist focuses in on a behind-the-scenes look at men of power in the 18th century when Europe’s might was at its peak. As usual, his techniques walk a fine line between graffiti and fine art, but he has taken the added step of staging elaborate photoshoots for reference in this new set of paintings.
