Business & Pleasure comes to the Corridor Gallery Project Space a solo exhibition of Christina Massey. Massey’s bold compositions are painterly and sculptural creations of recycled work clothes, older paintings, and new visceral paint elements.
In the exhibition Business and Pleasure there is a sense of violence in the deconstruction and a sexualized tenderness holding pieces together as they fold into each other. Bold colors slice and fold through the paintings, off setting these tactile squares.
Massey’s inspiration is driven from “the Economic Recession, Bank Bail Outs and the emotional ups and downs that have followed these events, I literally “destroyed” my past work in order to rebuild it in a new form.” These organic pieces resemble tattered earthy quilts that are reminiscent of the artist’s personal journey, which resonates with the economic ups and downs to which everyone can relate.
Corridor Gallery is open Fridays – Saturdays from 12 to 6pm and by appointment.
