Phillip Swarbrick
The work of Phillip Swarbrick is often portrayed a pornographic because it sometimes deals with sub-cultural areas of life. He himself characterises much of his work as 'dangerous' - he relishes exploring those areas of life that are rarely the subject matter of art. He enjoys the fantasies that he can create by touching on extreme or taboo subjects, and the discomfiture of viewers for whom the content is too strong. But do not be misled, Swarbrick is a talented artist. He was born in South Africa and, after a short spell in the police force, came to England to escape from apartheid. For a time he worked as an art teacher before launching himself into a full-time artistic career. Besides his work for the Adonis Gallery, he is also a fine portrait painter (you can see his portrait of the leading gay-rights activist Phillip Tatchell above). His work is often confrontational, sometimes shocking, but always exceptionally interesting and well-realised. His paintings may be hard to display, but he has many collectors who look forward to every new work by this exceptional artist.
