CHARLIE ANDERSON SELECTED WORKS 10th May - 23rd June
Selected works by Charlie Anderson continues the artist's exploration of post internet culture and the filtration of appropriated imagery. From fake news to memes, images and information are shared and transformed; becoming GIFs, Tumblr posts, Instagram posts and Facebook posts. By appropriating and transforming selected images and text, the paintings become a vestige of the source material, embedded in paint as a snapshot of fleeting life.
Each canvas is primed and sanded, with layers of paint applied in a flat graphic style using stencils, silk screens and brushes. The final effect recalls the frantic nature of ripped up advertising, conversely made in a careful manner using paint.
