Artist Christina Massey
Brooklyn, New York USA
Business & Pleasure 21
Oil on Canvas with Neck Tie & Nylons
The piece is a part of the series titled “Business & Pleasure.” Each work is created from business attire donated from bank employees that has been hand stitch together with torn up sections of my own past “failed” paintings and scraps of new canvas.
Inspired by the Bank Bail Outs, I literally “destroyed” my past work in order to rebuild it again in a new form. The results are organic, quilt-like surfaces made from painted canvas where the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious influence of the business clothing lies within the composition as reminders of the ever present influence of commerce on the creation and promotion of Art.
The works are physically fragments of new and old, success and failure. They are bits & pieces of my past and present, likes and dislikes, a merger of corporate requirements and the livelihood of being an Artist.
