Profile

Borin Van Loon has been an artist and illustrator based in Suffolk since 1975. He has lived in Ipswich since 1979. This retrospective exhibition at The Freudian Sheep Contemporary Art Gallery, 104 St Helens Street, Ipswich runs from the Opening Event at 3pm to 6pm on Saturday June 6 2015 (drinks, nibbles, music; no invitation necessary, all welcome) until Friday 3 July. The opening hours and visitor details can be found at http://www.freudiansheep.co.uk .

The exhibition will comprise all four exhibition spaces of the Freudian Sheep’s 17th century merchant’s house. Works ranging from collages, early posters, oil paintings, watercolours, comics and three dimensional work will be on show; some of the work has never been exhibited before. Drawing inspiration from the Belgian and Paris Surrealist movements and the psychedelic art of the 1960s, Borin has been developing his unique style of surreal humour, photo-realistic paintings and collage comics over the last forty years.

Since 2012 he has embarked on a new sequence of non-figurative paintings on glass with integral painted framing, rich in saturated colour, sometimes using mirrors. A selection of these new works will be on display in The Full Sunlight Room. Fragmented portraits of manipulated print media will be on display in The Facial Make-Ups Room.

Elsewhere, surrealism rubs shoulders with skyscapes, portraits and works which disturb and amuse in equal measure. Borin’s unique collaged graphic novel The Bart Dickon Omnibus will be on sale at a special low exhibition price, plus a very limited signed edition (of ten!) of the collected works of Roy of the Rogers comic strip.

This is an unrepeatable opportunity to see a representative selection of Borin Van Loon’s prolific output over the last forty-five years.
