Exhibition of paintings by local artist Bert McLean - In ode to the recently deceased corner shop shrine that was Price fighter.

About

DADASDA Manifeasto

During the past 2 years, artist Bert McLean has been making projects inspired by his local area – the place where he has lived all his life. He has taken a particular interest in the corner shop and the off licence as providers of a library of graphics, shapes and objects to occupy his paintings. Using product names, fonts and character icons to make 2D and 3D collaged paintings, he deliberately reinterprets their meanings or representations to make them into something that is more familiar to himself – to make them his own family of products.

Bert is delighted to show DADASDA Manifeasto at the Rose Lipman building on 11th October 2018. He presents a spatially challenged set of paintings, in homage to the loss of Pricefighter - the empty shell of a corner shop across from the Rose Lipman building, where Bert always imagined his work would live. Now that Pricefighter has closed down the paintings are temporarily a little lost. That is why they are all huddled together – waiting for a new home, or super-market-collaboration. Together they form the DADASDA Manifeasto with complementary crispy wontons served by resident avant-garde Thai chef, Bangkok Delivery Boy.
