Description

Given free reign over all eighty pages of this issue of FILE, John Scott, here known as John Mary Shelley Scott, created an epic drawing work bringing together many of the themes that had preoccupied him and his work for years before; gender and acceptance, politics and class, illness and disfigurement, angst and despair. Scott’s oilstick races across the paper with an economy of movement that creates incredibly poignant expressions on his figures’ faces in a half-dozen marks and when combined with the poetic fragments of text headings like “Anxiety”, “Surgery and Madness”, “The Topology of Rejection” or “The Escape” makes a work that is not an easy or simple experience. A narrative teleology is only hinted at in his telling of the life story of ‘Diane Frankenstein’, is played against a vague backdrop of suffering and despair, in all a moving and unsettling work. Designed by General Idea. Edition of 3000.
