Andrew Berarnini, on his collection for Saatchi Art, “Nowheresville“:

Along rural routes barely numbered and mapped, amidst salted deserts, yeasty farms, meadow glades trampled by wild ponies, always some fearless eccentric sets up shop: Utopian socialists or Transylvanian transexuals, radical libertarians or black magicians, rich weirdos or poor cranks. Amongst the pastures and plains there’s always a little space for dreamers, no matter how dreamy or weird. Fodder for slashers rather than slapstick, way out there in the wilderness hinterlands, the middle of nowhere, there’s certainly room for a gag or two.
