David MacDowell’s work deftly combines satire, irreverence, and seething wit. A self-taught artist, MacDowell combines cultural references with the magnetism of the “dark hook”, creating unexpected plays on pop that inject the familiar with blistering hyperboles. Seeking to unveil the feared and the reviled, while expertly weaving critical commentary with hilarity, MacDowell’s work is an effective combination of complicity and critique. Appropriately in keeping with the movement, MacDowell’s pieces combine a pop surrealist aesthetic with deliberate references that gleans and transforms the Known into powerful generational odes to discontent and dystopian irony. Abound with criticism and an acerbic wit, unearthing the nightmares that lurk just beneath the veneer of celebrity culture, his work fearlessly taunts the obsequiousness of our cultures iconographies, creating unexpected inversions and re-combinations that gently tug at its unraveling strings
