All You’ll Ever Need is a new solo show from artist David Shillinglaw, opening at the East Gallery in London on August 25…

Presented by online gallery, Cement Graphic Art, Shillinglaw’s exhibition takes place after a month-long Cape Town residency. His work often makes use of text, words and phrases to create some striking imagery.

Self Medication

“I see a dual-characteristic in all of us,” says Shillinglaw, “the momentary instinct versus a conscious foresight; something like living-in-the-moment, while making a ten-year plan. We react to our environment and conditions, while formulating ideas about how to prepare for the future. Our daily grind is consumed with reactions, sensations and momentary conclusions. These conclusions feed us and fill the void; the decisions we make, act as stopping points on a larger, ever growing map.”

Towers of Learning

“All You’ll Ever Need is a false prophesy; an advertisement, designed to entice an audience into believing there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but there is no pot of gold, only a rainbow. The exhibition attempts to highlight the chaos and contradictions we deal with, juggling what we need and what we want, the chaos of the moment set against the choices of the bigger picture.”

The show opens at the East Gallery in London on August 25 and runs until September 4. More details at cement-gallery.com.
