Sinsel’s paintings in British Art Show 8 draw on the German fairytale Hansel and Gretel. Culinary pleasure and digestion (not least the appeal of gingerbread, or a witch’s preference for roast boy) is reflected in his use of appropriated material, including fossilised animal faeces. Sinsel comments, ‘I feel like I’m making an object rather than a painting, almost as if I am tricking you with a piece of gingerbread in place of an image.’

For British Art Show 8 in Southampton Daniel Sinsel’s work is exhibited at Southampton City Art Gallery.
