The work in Mindviscosity has been created in the wake of Furie's transformative experience as the creator of Pepe the Frog - a character meant to provoke joy and laughter only to be appropriated and subverted by others for genuinely sinister purposes. Furie's recent paintings seemed leavened by his experience, as his unsettling menagerie of creatures seem content to withhold their true intent. Despite Furie's use of inviting colours and friendly cartoon iconography, Furie's richly visual imagination plumbs darker depths.
