The Substrate Fine Art Gallery is pleased to present Will Sergeant’s “My Own Worst Enemy” art exhibition. This will mark the first major U.S. exhibition for Sergeant, who has enjoyed much critical acclaim for his latest body of work. The show will feature Sergeant’s abstracts, collages and screen prints. Highlights include some of his minimalist pieces: Behind the Voodoo Curtain, 21st Century Fallen, Dream On!, Fade Out and Trying to Master Unseen Forces.
“All of the works mean something to me and have a story behind them. Some of them are tied to events that have taken place on tour or by situations I have found myself in.” Sergeant approaches painting in exactly the same way as he approaches creating music. “It has always been a mystical process and I still don’t understand where it comes from,” he says of creating. “I begin sometimes with the most vague idea of where I would want to go with the music. I have found if you have a strict plan it never ends up as you have imagined. And, as with the music, the paintings create their own path and they just lead me down it.
”Will Sergeant has recorded and performed worldwide with Echo & the Bunnymen for thirty years. He also has long-term experience in various fields of performance including recording and the visual arts.
