‘Do you Want Chips With That…’ is a solo presentation of works by Newcastle born and London based artist Bex Massey.

About

This exhibition collates political and social unease as it meanders from a deal or no deal Brexit into the farcical nature of the gender divide.  The paintings eighties-nineties palette screams at a shared experience of consumer gluttony whilst leaving the viewer pleasantly satiated.   

Sitting somewhere between painting, sculpture and archive, Massey’s work examines the role of painting and the language of display in the face of popular culture.   Her work investigates notions of worth, both in terms of allegory; the throw away nature of British popular culture and the undercurrent of anxiety drifting just below the surface of daily life.   Her paintings present and refashion paraphernalia appropriated from her adolescence in an ‘awkward couple’ of garish nostalgia and traditional making techniques.   In so doing she invites the audience to independently manufacture their own personal histories through their associative memories to object and image.
