INFORMATION

Infatuated by colour, novelty and technology, Missy Dempsey is a graphic artist whose bold compositions aim to evoke a sense of joy and curiosity.

 

In this exhibition, Missy surgically removes characters from their ephemera and gives them a postage stamp window to gaze through. Recontextualised in this way there’s an uneasiness about them that is contrasted against bright and hopeful colours. This tactile work invites us to contemplate how technology informs the way we consume material in the digital age of reproduction.

 

A life sized window installation also invites you to become a subject of the work.
