When I looked at him I went mad with desire and envy and worship and self projection
- Lester Bangs on Elvis - 1977

Fanclub delves into the psyche of the fan, presenting a series of works by artists who are prepared to give themselves over to and examine their obsessions. Their objects of desire are loved, admired and dreamed about resulting in an eclectic lucky bag of art objects, paintings and drawings.

Marcus Oakley lovingly paints his seventies idols from Brian Wilson to Stevie Nicks
Alex Michon creates her own private Idaho inhabited by 50s Tin Pan Alley heart throb Billy Fury
Antonio Gianasi draws heavenly fashion boys from the pages of L'Uomo Vogue
Sarah Doyle loves Prince, she shows him astride his Purple Rain bike, in 100 drawings and on a pop pillow - to gaze into his eyes as you fall asleep.
Annabel Dover's idols are a collection of lovingly recreated Oil on Canvas Elvis'
Cathy Lomax isolates fans in the throws of mass hysteria creating a series of lush portraits with classical references.
Stella Vine's paintings explore the iconography of rock and roll from PJ Harvey to the death's of three starstruck teenagers
