50ft McQueenie – by Gerwyn Davies

WHEN : 9th – 26th May
WHERE : Metro Arts

Fashion has provided us the power of endless transformation. Now that we spend a greater amount of our time online we might believe that we have a deeper sense of control over how we construct and selectively represent our bodies through image. I place confidence in the sentiment that the parameters defining the fashionable and beautiful have greatly expanded as a result of the rise of virtual technology. In making these works I employ techniques of construction that create a permutation of the objects’ relation to space. These studio portraits of intensified and altered identities are intended to charter the boundlessness of fashion’s transformative power and potential.”
