Six self-initiated full size paintings / collages by Andy «Votel» Shallcross, on show from Jan 25th with a special launch party feat guest DJ and finishing Feb 28th with a Jane Weaver One Deck Wednesday Social…

Writer, DJ, designer, broadcaster, label boss and anti-musician Andy «Votel» Shallcross displays a series of original personal works created, at home, in October / November 2017.

Based around contemporary «fakelore», reducing influences of European science-fiction art, scholastic illustration, post-pop-art, Plakatstil and mid-century graphic design Andy uses simple methods of painting, collage, deletion and recontextualisation for these one-off, large format placards.

Adopting a recurring patchwork method found in all of Andy's multi-discipline «magpaic» activities, the running narrative and aesthetic format used in STOP MAKING SÉANCE can be described as pictorial-anagrams, which Votel playfully refers to as Andygrams.

Having designed over 200 record sleeves in over 20 years of his graphic design day-job these singular quick-fire situation-abstractions are not intended for large-scale reproduction or as communicative graphic-design thus retaining a freedom previously unexplored in Andy's visual work and will be on display for short residency in Manchester, Gothenburg and Barcelona in early 2018.
