Drawings by David ShrigleyJuxtapoz // Saturday, 03 Dec 2011
David Shrigley's drawings combine words and quick illustrations that have a moment of "Ah ha!" once the joke is figured out (very often it is not a long process). They walk the line of good and bad taste, often ridiculing familiar institutional and personal paradoxes. Some of the topics tacked in the drawings could be examined seriously, but then it wouldn't be nearly as funny. As a body of work, they are fun, sarcastic, and bold, which is the essence of their charm.
