BRAIN DRAIN @ Winchester Discovery Centre > 14 May – 11 July 2010

Brain Drain is the title of the new exhibition by UK artist Jon Burgerman. The show will involve the squishing, twisting and wrenching of Jon's meagre brain to elicit revelational truths and insights through the medium of pens and paint.

Augmented reality, dualism, twin earth theory, the pineal gland and the perfect sandwich are current concerns being wrung out.

Jon Burgerman's work often deals with the modern world, disquietude, mental phenomena and irrelevant minutiae. These themes are taken as starting points for the creation of often flowing and interconnected hand rendered works that are simultaneously painting, design and mass communication.

Brain Drain will feature new paintings, prints, drawings, digital animations and soft sculpture, as well as key works from the last 8 years.
