Riley Payne

Comprising uncanny accumulations and pairings of classical forms and Google image search results, Riley Payne’s fastidiously realised drawings might be considered in terms of collage. Banana bunches and cigarette-smoking carrot men coalesce, while a neon hot dog perches before Antonio Canova’s Sleeping Nymph. Art history and the absurd knock heads, as do the labour of technique and the flippancy of the one-liner.
