Brian Maguire at the Kerlin Gallery

Agitprop as art eh. Long may Brian burn with political passion. Quite a lively portrait of Patrice Lumumba, a giant suffering Allende and a lot of dirty angry expressionism. Not much happening in the way of sales but you can’t have it both ways. His heroes are hardly heroes of the bourgeosie. Or his concerns theirs.
