|Ross Jones, I.E.D|
Due to a life split between London and The Bahamas, Blue Curry’s sculptural installations fuse many 'tropical' and ‘urban’ materials to create works which suggest both personal and cultural frustrations. Much of Curry’s works are influenced by his Caribbean background converging with his experiences living in London. Sculptures such as the work above, a car tire covered with a mosaic of thousands of black and white beans resembling snakeskin souvenirs in tourist markets, hint at frustrations with the effects of tourism and the false perception of life in paradise.
|Tim Phillips, 2011|
Tim Phillips explores the idea that the modern population has been gradually forced to relinquished control over many parts of our lives. Those in power are now in control of everything from politics to our finances and communication. He identifies the materials, colours and shapes that convey and help legitimise the control or dominance of institutions, organisations and individuals. Stripped of unique identifications such as corporate logos, religious imagery and cult symbols, his works mix the different visual languages that form a barrier between us and those in control while naturalising that position.
