Just Boys by Gerard Hemsworth. Gerard Hemsworth studied at St. Martin’s School of Art from 1963-1967 and has exhibited his work internationally since the 1970s. In 2000, he was the winner of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Charles Wollaston Prize. He is currently Professor of Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. Hemsworth’s cartoon-like linear image immediately seems to contradict itself; the cool subdued colours and restraint in composition feel very adult, in stark contrast with the comic strip stylisation and infantile subject matter. He asks the viewer to really question the image- is all as it seems?
