Purdy Hicks Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of drawings and paintings on paper by Tim Stoner. These recent works reflect how the human unit and group bonding coexist within forms of folk culture, vernacular media and the imagination.
The psychological phenomenon of Groupthink occurs when the desire for harmony or conformity influences members of a group; this desire can result in problematic outcomes for the mass as individualistic creativity is suppressed. Consequently distorted decisions are made due to lack of perspective, which can be induced by the pressure of panic, or just mere complacency. George Orwell described a world of Groupthink in his novel 1984, where non-subversion is described as an act of complicity, generating a force that drives humanity into the arms of totalitarianism.
