Simon English: my big self decoy justin beiber' brings together a significant new body of painted drawings by the artist that format themselves around the double page spread, with both image and text on the page to invite and resist quiet contemplation. These exquisitely delicate and brutal drawings tussle with one another for space, pulling the viewer into the energetic and colourful vortex of the artist's psyche. Diaries jostle with devotions, desires and disputes-a confabulation of friction and fiction in a place where fetish and fact collide. Simon English draws across the blank page with the instincts of one entering cyberspace. His surfing history is left only too clear on the surface of the page, or buried beneath heavy black deletions and overpainting. His are the 'old' gremlins, the monsters within that say one is too much and more is never enough --
Laurence Scott is the author of Four Dimensional Human whcih made the Samuel Johnson Prize 2015 shortlist.
