Humour and pathos jostle for attention in this autobiographical series of paintings and drawings which has been four years in the making.

Reconstructed from photographs and personal memories, the paintings that make up Halfboy are imbued with Stuart’s portraitist’s eye for detail, bringing to life the minutiae of time and place. We are transported from 1980s council estates to thorny depressions in the landscape, bearing witness to tragicomic scenes from the artist’s childhood and adolescence.
