Khan's Bargain Revelation

Renton, Lucy [Artist] (2017) Khan's Bargain Revelation. (screenprint and object).


Suspended lengths of bright vinyl tablecloth fabric, sourced from the Khan's Bargains household store in Blake's own Pecham Rye are carefully cut and folded to reveal bright, printed illuminations on their underside. Suspension from clothes hangers suggests human personae, selves, angels, options and alternatives. This combination of everyday, mass-produced material with crafted intervention links artist Lusy Renton's interest in domestic interiors as a source of artistic eqnuiry with Blake's passionate concern for visionary experience as something present in the everyday, accessible to anyone using their imagination as a tool of enlightened understanding, just like Ginsberg's Whitman-insipred queer eye on nocturnal Californian retail.
