    “Not to be shocking means to agree to be furniture” — Peter Saul

    Amboosh is arguably Peter Saul's greatest print, Angela Davis is not far behind. His virtuosity as a painter, draughtsman, and image-maker is immediately apparent. Seducing the viewer to look more and look longer. His virtuosity as a storyteller is deceptive.
    Which side is he on? Who’s story is he telling?

    Angela Davis - quite literally being crucified by the department of justice.

    We all cringe as our own and past histories confront us and scramble to self-censor before we forget these are artworks.
