Martin Langford, 'This Is Us'

From comic strip-style skits on the drudgery of daily life to dark labyrinthine worlds exposing humanity’s foibles, printmaker Martin Langford’s works mix sardonic cartoonishness with powerful social commentary.

In this major new solo show at For Arts Sake, he takes a blackly humorous look at the way we, collectively as a society, are architects of our own existential crises. 

Intricate etchings feature monolithic, looming creatures forged from heavy industry, hard architecture and accumulated junk. Inspired by disaster movies of old – Godzilla, King Kong – they satirise our obsessions with consumption, consumerism and cash-fuelled Big City expansion.

Ghost.jpg

In other works, our work and domestic lives are rendered bleak cartoons of victimhood, while, elsewhere, quietly blistering pieces interrogate the relentless decimation of our natural environment. There is hope, too, though – the flourishing of green shoots amidst, and in spite of, the desolation.

Says Martin: “My work is about the environment, about pollution, the way we live and about man’s collective greed. I think people are tired of being lectured to about ‘green’ issues but they do still care – with a bit of humour, I believe you can relay a message simply and effectively.”

He adds: “‘This Is Us’ is about how we have collectively as a society ‘created’ what we have now. The large creatures I draw – whether they are made from buildings, industry, cities or the junk we throw out – these represent ‘us’; a manifestation of our actions.”

A member of the prestigious Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Martin studied under the renowned David Glück on the Advanced Printmaking MA at Central St Martin’s. He was drawn early on to the graphic black and white quality of etching, and cites among his inspirations the late comic book author Harvey Pekar, Robert Crumb, Georges Seurat and M.C. Escher.

Ealing 135 is a friendly local network run by and for parent and carers in the borough of Ealing. We are run entirely by volunteers drawn from within our membership. We organise and run local family friendly events including play sessions, parent and carer groups, action songs and rhymes sessions, seasonal parties and Nearly new sales. So if you are a young family, join the 135 group, as it gives you access to all this and more. For more information on Ealing 135, go to www.ealing135.org.uk.

Ealing 135, as a non profit making group, is raising money throughout the year for Sun and Stars Appeal at West Middlesex Hospital, the chosen charity for 2018. The children’s wards at West Middlesex Hospital provide care to over 8,000 babies, children and young people every year. This is continuing to increase, with a quarter of the local population under 18 years of age. While the hospital staff on these wards provide excellent care, the environment in which they are treated requires significant improvement. The aim of the Sun and Stars appeal is to transform these wards to create a child-friendly, welcoming, calming environment with better facilities, specifically designed to make being in hospital easier for children and their parents.
