Booooooo!! There. Have we got your undivided attention now? Good. And are you sitting comfortably? Brilliant. Then if so we’ll begin our story……When we were young, the only blend of ghouls and light-heartedness available began and ended with BBC1’s Rentaghost. And trust us on this when we say that despite Auntie’s best intentions, it simply wasn’t that good. Nor scary. Skip a few generations mind, and we now finally have something scary-ish, yet exceedingly good, albeit in giclee on canvas form, rather than televisualar. Still, there’s something lavishly Technicolour about Xue Wang’s very latest, not-of-this-world illustrative reveals.
Entitled ‘Yes Madam’, this brand new Spring 2015 limited edition visual creations (comprising a three-part mini-series) is spooktastical in a more sassy and streetwise compositional appeal. And doesn’t so much put the frighteners on her audience as much as the most pleasant of eye-openers. The sort mesmerised by the haunting quality and wit injected into this unique take on ghost stories by one of the UK’s leading lights in her contemporary figurative genre. Available to pre-order as of now, we’d strongly recommend you do just that!
