"101 portraits of HIM, the biggest action figure I'll ever own. It's all about the artist collecting the collector, a David and Goliath battle over power and punch lines", says McHarg.
McHarg is an Underground artist, curator and gallerist based in London. His Subway Gallery is situated in a pedestrian subway underneath the Marylebone flyover (Edgware Road Tube Station.) Within the gallery you will find on many occasions a life-size sculpture of one of the most important and renowned collectors of modern art in the world.
In recent years he has become a reclusive but intriguing figure. His influence to form opinion and success on new artists is unparalleled, his reputation as quietly moving through studios, galleries and art fairs, snapping up those that take his interest and dropping those of whom he has had enough, makes him equally loved and loathed. Who better to transform into many wonderful disguises as HIM. This is a humorous subversion of the art world, where the artist takes matters into his own hands and collects the collector.
