Should of Could of Would of
January 31 - February 27, 2016
MOCA London is pleased to present the first 2016 exhibition by Annie Attridge.
In her new works Should of Could of Would of Annie Attridge depicts scenes and snippets of shapes and forms of imagined or real lustful trysts the artist should have done, could have done, would have done or even might have done.
Her continued loved affair with porcelain plays out through her now familiar symbolism, using both her avatars and the female form to describe the symbiosis of her sexual and romantic consciousness.
Attridge places porcelain bases under the porcelains and they are reminiscent of wobbly scaffolding, but still strong at the core. These metal based themselves are placed on top of organically sculpted concrete plinths to create towers of or to love, romantic hedonist ideals presented on a pedestal..
For some time, Attridge has been exploring and embracing the juxtaposed positioning of materials in a manner that seeks to conjure an erotic feeling that has been built up from the foundations, as if the strength of love exists from the roots up.
She will also present a new series of prints to accompany the new porcelain works. They too explore her world of avatar and masks. Chaotic, energetic marks express dreamlike scenes, a little grimy, but seeped like some kind of private passionate expression.
