Objections To An Empty Mind

Here are a few photographs I took yesterday while visiting a rather wonderful exhibition of work by marginalised and at times controversial British artist Austin Osman Spare at The Hidden Noise in Glasgow. The show presents a small selection of hallucinatory, seldom seen works from various private collections. Having recently read this fine book, it was a joy to see Spares's exquisite draughtsmanship in the flesh. I was particularly drawn in by his peculiar, anamorphic portraits which are like a sideways glance into a mysterious and strange world. The show runs to the 17th March and is well worth a visit if you're in the vicinity.
