Blain|Southern is proud to announce its representation of Jake & Dinos Chapman Over the past two decades, the Chapman brothers have created one of the most distinctive oeuvres in contemporary art. Their tableaux of twentieth-century ruin take on everything from the fast-food industry to our culture’s preoccupation with war and violence. Deft in a range of media, which includes printmaking, painting and sculpture, the Chapmans often contaminate or remake an existing artwork to challenge our most valued beliefs. With their sharp wit and playful intelligence, Jake & Dinos Chapman never shy away from deflating the pieties of our age. This is yet another exciting development in the gallery's programme and we look forward to announcing the dates of our first exhibition with Jake & Dinos Chapman in the next few months.
