Gladstone Gallery in Brussels is currently showing an exhibition of new work by artist Raymond Pettibon. Long recognized for his singular works combining text and figuration, Pettibon merges disparate elements of American iconography reminiscent of comic strips and advertising. Emerging from the Southern California punk culture, where he was closely associated with the legendary band, Black Flag, Pettibon’s works on paper, wall drawings and films, capture the underlying forces that dominate the conditions of the American psyche.

In this exhibition of new works, Pettibon continues to expand upon strategies of collage, drawing, and painting that conjure earlier established themes and imagery from sources including, Noir and B movies, cult icons, literature, television, political propaganda, and old comic books.

New Works from Raymond Pettibon will run through to July 10th 2010 at Gladstone Gallery. 12 rue de Grand Cerf, Brussels.
