'Fat-Bottomed Girls’, a solo exhibition of new drawings by Julie Verhoeven at Mobile Home, dedicated to her Top 40 pop songs. Mixing 60's and 70's imagery with a post-punk aesthetic - at once precious, funky and throwaway - Verhoeven illustrates her all time favourites, which include the Buzzcocks' 'Orgasm Addict', Olivia Newton John's 'Xanadu', and Roxy Music's 'All I Want is You'. Julie Verhoeven is one of the country's leading illustrators and is a regular contributor to Self Service, Dazed & Confused, The Face and The Independent on Saturday.
40 drawings of various sizes each requiring a different style of frame.
Mounting was a mixture of float and window-mount. Darbyshire selected a range of frames from hand-gessoed and waxed, gold gilt, and pre-finished patterned mouldings. The over-all effect once installed, as directed by Verhoeven, was a psychedelic grotto, ideally complimenting the trashy pop paraphernalia the artist also had on display.
