WHO DOES NOT WORK, DOES NOT LOVE

About

BEARSPACE presents the first solo exhibition in the UK of Matthew Mc Guinness, featuring works constructed during his day job as a cook. Mc Guinness will be filling the gallery with art works created from the ephemera taken from the kitchens in which he works. These include detailed sketches and thoughts on T-towels from some of London's top restaurants. Amongst cooking stains they inscribed with song lyrics from the grateful dead, details of orders and strange doodles all created in between service. He connects these works to the rebellious world of writing on things, graffiti lettering created swiftly and instinctually. Other sculptures and collage works on show are created from found food packaging.
