These are grim times. The world seems increasingly insane, filled with avarice, indifference, and pointless suffering. And David Fullarton appears to be intent on making matters worse. Here is an artist who apparently finds our atrocious situation endlessly amusing. Laughing in the face of looming disaster, mocking our fears and anxieties and ridiculing the absurdity of modern existence, he demonstrates no respect for the seriousness of our malaise. This latest assortment of abject scrawls continues his dubious chronicle of mania and melancholy, of lives infested with quiet desperation and bitter regret. We would advise prudent individuals to avoid it at all cost.
