Sleaze

Andrew Mattock, McCulloch Gallery

The mass marketing of spicy pulp fiction began in the United States during the 1920s, peaking with an era of mass-produced disposable titillation, during the late 1960s. The covers of these paperbacks during that monochrome time were a mass of technicolour all with artistically rendered bodies and humorous tag lines.

My new work revels in this gloriously smutty time, aping the soul-shocking colour and text of these 1960s books. When code words described sex acts, writers used pseudonyms, and publishers hid behind post office boxes.
