A group of ten students from Chelsea College of Art's MA Fine Art program organised a group exhibition at Art Gallery 23 in Bermondsey. This large warehouse space in a former biscuit factory provided lots of space for artworks and guests. Responding to the former purpose of the space, we considered ideas for our works which recalled production lines and the manufacturing of consumer goods. Each artist was to respond to the word “consumption” in a way that was most meaningful for them.
My painting for this exhibition Sweet Temptation looks at the tension that the desire to consume consumer goods creates within me as I try to reduce my waste production.
We were fortunate to have the seven members of blues/rock band Typical Daydream perform for three hours at the Private View. The music was appreciated by our 200 guests, and encouraged them to linger within the space.
