Oliver Cain uses his work to question the relationships between gender, (homo) sexuality and societies’ misconceptions.
Appropriated everyday objects transform stereotypes and famous art historical references become twisted. But, despite what it might look like to the contemporary spectator, a purely erotic and queer reading of the work would be misguided. There is an universal profundity at play revealing itself slowly for those willing to look and feel.
Oliver will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
