About the artwork
Dickon Drury upends traditional forms of still-life and portraiture, placing his subjects in ludic and surreal situations in which peril is cut through with humour. In this new work, a mustachioed man stalks the streets of a small town at night. His unnatural height is perhaps explained by the eyes peering through the gaps in his coat - rather than a sinister interlocutor, Drury's agent is a 'totem pole trench', a classic slapstick trope.
