Reality Is A Matter of Perspective - ACF Studio Exhibition

Central Saint Martins graduate Marcus Morrison-Pemberton creates art under the emotionally charged alter ego 'Dupelux'. The 'Reality is a matter of perspective' exhibition deals mainly with consumerism, engaging with specific issues like conspicuous consumption, virtual reality vs reality, branding, and identity to name but a few. Mixed media visuals from a refreshing perspective addressing engaging social and political issues also.

Marcus' artistic inspirational figures are Tobias Wong, Fredrich Hundertwasser, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol. He also draws great inspiration form the works of French sociologist, philosopher and cultural theorist Jean Baudrillard as well as other key figures in the postmodernist movement.

"The Possessed Devil Conjurer"

Just found August Strindberg's book "Legender"(Legends) for 10p in a thrift store.
Beautiful, dark cover on this second edition published in 1912.
The book was written in 1898 as a sequel to "Inferno", still in a crisis of occult obsessions, pseudo-scientific experimentation and paranoid psychosis.
