NOW! That’s What I Call Anxiety, 2023
Displayed UK-wide on digital and printed billboards, Jan – Feb 2023 as part of The Gallery, Season 2 ‘The State We’re In’.
The Gallery is conceived by Martin Firrell and produced by Artichoke in partnership with the Out-of-home industry.
NOW! That's What I Call: Anxiety (2022) was originally a drawing that Trackie McLeod turned into a monoprint for a more scrappy, childlike finish, and digitised for The State We're In. It's a play on the 'NOW! That's What I Call...' CD's we all know and loved as kids, harking back to a simpler time.
The last few years we have been living in what feels like a period of constant upheaval and uncertainty. Trackie McCleod’s way of dealing with his own struggles with anxiety has been to find light in the darkness through humour and his artistic process.
