'Dream On' A Show By Xander Coy - Private View

Performing & Visual Arts

Join us for the private view of 'Dream On' a solo show of works by Xander Coy

Xander Coyโ€™s โ€˜Dream Onโ€™ solo exhibition showcases his latest body of work. Each piece is communicated and depicted through his signature collage style using hot and cold palettes and chromatic extremes.

Drawn to collage because of the boundless creative possibilities it has to offer, Coy juxtaposes seemingly disparate images to create a narrative. Narratives of escapism, yearning, vulnerability and transience are often the result.

Integral to each composition is his mixture of both realism and abstraction creating a dissonance in the mind when you explore the paintings - the same sensation experienced during a dream when things do not make sense but there is actually meaning to it somewhere.

Coy is fascinated with semiotics - how meaning is created and how meaning is communicated is often at the forefront of his thoughts when creating work. Signs and symbols such as traffic lights or emojis regularly appear in his works often slightly altered, reinvented or recontextualised to give a different meaning. In the same way a child might draw a smiley face over a picture of a circled sun or a moustache over a face Coy displays a childlike desire to recreate and re invent familiar images when painting.

Private View: Thursday 8th December, 6.00pm - Late

A night of amazing art, drinks and music plus a chance to get the first look at Coy's incredible new collection of works
