Venture into the dark dream world of Mr Four Fingers with their debut solo show fragments.
Doug Henderson, the South African-born artist behind Mr Four Fingers,
draws inspiration from what lies beneath: the unseen and only ever imagined.
Driven by an obsession of skulls, ink, bones and gold, Mr Four Fingers explores
the dark spaces between what's real and what's not.
Fragments is an exploration into murky dreams and the partial memories we have of them upon waking. Mr Four Fingers examines this fragmentation through figures or skulls that are often partially hidden or shown as a 'broken' section.
The inspiration for the collection comes from Doug's own relationship with dreams, as he explains: “I often experience dreams where I’m creating 'art', but always forget the specifics when I awake. I’ve been interested in the dream realm for a long time, specifically those that are lucid. I’ve even kept a diary of dreams experienced over a year.”
