Anthony’s large canvases, with their dislocate structure, inevitably transport the viewer through a fantasy world where powerful and bright figurative structures, quirky collage, assorted ephemera, waggish biomorphic images and abundant colour all pulsate, intersect, cross over, reshape and gather on a visual journey, the full force of which, as with all art, may only be understood within the creative resource of the individual viewer.
To achieve this state of private intimacy it is essential to be rid of inhibition, to boldly dare and in doing so muse with the vigorous expressionist surfaces and cubist presentation that summon imaginativeness, fantasy and curiosity. Breslin’s often light-hearted canvases depict worlds of pure fun and colour that are popping with explosive, ejaculatory humour and pranks. His carnival characters are noisy, hilarious grotesques, chattering to us on their way to the next circus event. The future is a rich one for this young and charismatic painter whose art form is propelled by the impulse of his own authentic life’s force, revealing a freedom of expression that sheds the panoply of timorous restraint.
