Framed archival print on heavy matte stock of Billy Childish painting, released by Carl Freeman Gallery on the occasion of the Billy Childish solo exhibition "darkness was here yesterday," September 18 – October 26, 2013. Childish has produced varied work in many artistic endeavors -- as a musician, poet, painter, writer, filmmaker, publisher. His music work includes garage rock bands Thee Milkshakes, Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Headcoats, and others. Most notably associated with the Young British Artists and his breakoff group The Stuckists in 1990’s England, Childish’s career output has been prolific. His newer work, shown here, is less autobiographical than the rest of his oeuvre and focuses on historical and literary figures or nameless sailors or dock workers.
