Eduardo Paolozzi: General Dynamic F.U.N.


Monday 26 March - Saturday 21 April

Monday 23 April - Saturday 19 May

Sir Eduardo Paolozzi was one of the pioneers of the pop art movement in the UK. He was a compulsive collector and a jumbler of icons. Equally revered for his mechanistic sculptures and his kaleidoscopic print projects, the artist, who described himself as 'a wizard in Toytown', transformed the mundane, the derelict and the mass-produced into images that zap with electric eclecticism and impress with their graphic complexity. 'Carrots into pomegranates!'

Madagascar, the oldest island in the world and twice the size of Britain, is the enchanting home to unique people and nature, including the lemur. This exhibition is a series of paintings by artist Matt Falle, based on his sketches whilst travelling the island. A percentage of every sale will be donated to Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust’s vital conservation work in Madagascar.
