Adverts in My Dreams
‘Adverts in My Dreams’ is a solo show of the work of Karl Russell Vickers, an artist who works primarily creating paper collages. The exhibition includes 12 works from his ongoing Limited Time/ Travel series, produced from 2013- 2016. The works are presented as a single image spread across 12 pages. Although produced across a 3 year time period, the works show the bases of a number of themes that extend throughout Vickers practice. A variety of rock textures, detailed scientific drawings and fragments of advertising imagery combine throughout the exhibition to create a cohesion of an antiquated past and possible alternative futures. The exhibition exists as a journey, a guide, and a sales pitch for a way of life that is yet to come.
