From the 1930s depression right through up until the digital age, Brui’s Blue Collar Handjob exhibition draws on personal written journals to explore themes around the beauty of struggle. Home after a successful show at Serigraffeur gallery in Berlin, Brui has returned to the cafe space at Constellations in Liverpool. Brui is the studio moniker of local…

Gender Dilemmas

Amanda Maria Atkinson’s exhibition is a timely contribution to the topic of gender performativity at a time when the city has become a haven for stag and hen nights. You only have to walk around Concert Square and Seel Street to see these gender binaries played out in a rather unflattering fashion. Amanda is a…

Beatherder 2016: Quiet Bat People

What I like about Beatherder is that after six visits there was still new things I’d never seen before, I think (…they may or may not have been new). But that’s its charm – its attention to detail. It’s won awards. It was full of familiar faces from years gone by, and there’s a reason people keep coming…

Threshold 2016: Shying Away From The Well Known

It wasn’t a typical Saturday 2nd April as the Baltic Quarter of Liverpool was taken over by numerous bands, acts and artworks for the sixth annual Threshold Festival. With a buzz in the air you could almost taste, the roads surrounding Jamaica Street were thriving with visitors of all ages and backgrounds, orbiting an indiscernible epicentre of…

The 800lb Gorilla

I love art. When I arrive in a new city, I check the shower works in my hotel and bin the piss-poor Twinings tea by the kettle. Then, I find out where the nearest gallery is. I’ve spent a whole day checking out The Prado in Madrid, marvelling at a variety of pictures; generally only…

Why Tentacle Porn Should Be A Legitimate Art Form

At Managed Decline, we’ve always endorsed the murky depths of tentacle porn, but usually in the form of poetry as not to offend middle management types who distribute funding to start-up businesses. Now, with funding secured coupled with a pragmatic acknowledgement that our tentacle based pieces have some of the highest views on the website, it’s time we give credit…

Piet Mondrian, Composition with Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray and Blue, 1921.

Art  •  August 6, 2014  •  by Stephanie Whalley


Piet Mondrian – the man, the legend; modern art renegade and latest muse for Tate Liverpool’s most recent paying exhibition. This Dutch prodigy changed the face of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th Century and certainly pulled me through an art exam during my last year at high school. Recognised by everyone from…
