MANCHESTER.- The Edge of Things is a major solo exhibition by artist David Mackintosh featuring a selection of new and recent work.

Mackintosh’s practice centres around drawing; for more than a decade Mackintosh has been creating deceptively simple drawings that reveal a world that is both mundane and macabre exploring ideas of dislocation, isolation and indecision. Images of sex and death - a dismembered head, a warship, a naked torso sit alongside depictions of everyday life - a man walking his dog, a flock of birds. His work presents a dark and unsettling world view, but one which is permeated throughout by humour.

The Edge of Things will showcase some of Mackintosh’s most recent work, revealing the development of his practice into time based and installation mediums that explore the relationship between drawing, animation and sculpture, and exploring a growing concern with narrative.

The exhibition includes: a large-scale wall painting The Woods, a new stop-frame animation which brings Mackintosh’s surreal drawings to life, and a free-standing sculptural structure that houses a new body of works on paper, alongside a selection of his signature style drawings.

David Mackintosh was born in Sunderland in 1966; he has lived and worked in the North West of England since 1990. His work encompasses drawing, painting, sculpture and performance. He has exhibited widely throughout Europe and in America, and has work in Collection Berge Madrid, Ernst & Young London and in private collections throughout Europe and America. Mackintosh recently published his first monograph Imagine you’re in a room full of blind fools desperately grasping at nothing with an essay by Simon Morrissey. He has had major solo exhibitions at Hammersidi London, Mobile Home London and at Arnolfini Bristol 2003, and presented a solo show at Spike Island in Bristol in 2008.

The exhibition will be on view at Cornerhouse from January 23 through March 28, 2010.
