Charlie Mcfarley's work is the perfect example of the artist working as a saboteur. Disrupting the wonderful world of children's cartoon art and forcing the viewer into a landscape of intricately painted nightmares that seem to smile back at you... Truly visceral in their impact the paintings reveal the troubled vision of adult life seen through a child’s eye. Just lick the surface of any McFarley painting, nourishment has never been such fun! Saccharin foodstuffs and bonkers physiognomy, it’s the only thing necessary. "Teddy Baden".
