‘ASSEMBLAGE’ by William Blanchard aka ‘Wildcat Will’ Friday 24th April – Wednesday 6th May 2009
You are invited to the PRIVATE VIEW on Thursday 23rd April 6.30 – 10.00.
William Blanchard started his career as a musician with his first band Bruce Wayne and the Batniks (1982-89), a time in which he had a rock and roll epiphany (involving sex and drugs), in which ‘God’ gave him the name ‘Wildcat’, which he has used as an artist and musician ever since.
Wildcat Will has taken inspiration for this exhibition from Joseph Cornell (1903-72) who created ‘poetry from the commonplace’ especially with his boxed assemblages created from found objects, and the west coast artist Wallace Berman (1926-76) with reference to the privately made and published issues of ‘SEMINA’.
This is his first solo show in London for 5 years.
