Derrick Guild

The Scottish artist Derrick Guild is an artist who seems to go out of his way to make certain that nothing that he does appears trendy or avant-garde or looks anything like modernism – or even post modernism. This gives his work a sly conceptual edge unlike anything else around today and makes it avant-garde despite itself. It veers into the surrealist with elements of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur.
