Review – George Lund, Serendipity (Phase 1) Solo Exhibition. Written by Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney.
george-lund-230.jpgGeorge Lund presented a collection of new work with some retrospective. This was a solo show titled ‘Serendipity’ (Phase 1) at the Liverpool Centre for Arts Development (Liverpool, UK).

The exhibition concept was on the theme of serendipity and all it constitutes as a fortuitious accident, something that is meant to be. Lund’s exuberant creativity and vision coincided aesthetically with the idea to the exhibitions programme.

The collection of his work was formed by his take on iconic art by Dali, Van Gogh, Suret, Picasso and others, along with his own recognisable paintings developed on the theme of the ideal world. These images are produced in mixed media and paints on canvas.

The palette is vibrant with a fusion of layered textures in compositions, both narrative and figurative, but stylised in a naive abstract expression. The work is a pleasure to view and indeed encourages the sense of frivolity and the ideal, as intended in the romantic ideas.

Lunds trademark of the ‘Funkedelic Chicken’ can be observed throughout this series. A hydridised creature from his philosophical texts on the theme of ‘Animal Utopia’.

The exhibition venue is an alternative space. The Liverpool Centre for Arts Development presents a cultural setting for contemporary art in both business and educational setting.

Lunds show launches the ‘Serendipity’ exhibitions programme, as Phase 1 with another one to follow of a group show with work from Jo Derbyshire and others, as part of the Independents Liverpool Biennial 2008.
