Will Sergeant: My Own Worst Enemy

Penny Lane Gallery, L18
Fri 25th November 2011 to Wed 29th February 2012

Reviewed by Alicia Rose

‘This is exactly what Penny Lane needs,’ was the loudest quote given from amongst the heavyweight throng who came to celebrate both the opening of the brand new Penny Lane Gallery and the first major art exhibition of guitarist, Dj and artist Will Sergeant. Whilst the gallery offers humble square footage and a warm welcome, Sergeant’s My Own Worst Enemy offers a potentially candid insight into an emotive Bunnyman’s identity. His screen prints You Lucky People and Postcards from Cairo (right) encompass a unique father/son bond whereby Sergeant utilises wartime photos of his dad in an Andy Warhol POPism way. Further pieces such as Dream On and The Chaos and The Calamity stand out for their striking colour, whilst prints like - & + and Moths are pretty much showcasing true artistic skill. Attention to detail slipped only slightly as to presentation here and there but on the whole this was a lively and cross-genre delivered arrangement.

Gallery owner Christine Colvin was in buoyant mood as the till drawer continually opened to receive recompense for Sergeant’s wares and indeed Colvin’s love of both music and art sees her gallery in full cognitive activity for the whole of winter and well into Spring 2012 with The Specials’ bassist Horace Panter in line to reveal his collection, Robots, Saints and (Extra) Ordinary People.

My Own Worst Enemy runs until February 2012 and you can also find more facts, figures and fine art at www.willsergeant.com
