Patch Sinclair


Total FAIL is a new collection of composite drawings by Sydney-based illustrator Patch Sinclair, which remix themes of androgyny, consumerism and information overload.

12- 24 September, 2019

Curated to evoke feelings of desperation and unease in an era of peak capitalism and chaos, these illustrations are brimming with fragments from anywhere. These divergent elements are drawn into delicate watercolour compositions where drones carrying beer, 1:4 scale toy police cars, gender-neutral figures, endangered species and fast food wrappers overlap. Sinclair leaves us asking answerless questions, searching for solutions to crises that are no longer viable – all the while offering vivid colours that promise nothing.
