Baroque Pop by Chris Hawkes

Artist Description

Chris Hawkes’ works incorporate non-conventional materials such as nail varnish, nail transfers and plastic gemstones which convey associations to femininity, contemporary consumerist culture and queer subcultures. Chris places various opposing yet interacting elements such as gestures, transcribed doodles, abstract forms, and pre-processed images within the space of the painting. The idea of the sampled, second hand or re-contextualised image evokes social media and the normalisation of the construction of ‘identities’ made of images.  Their work has been exhibited in London, Brighton and in Chongqing, China, during a solo show at Organhuas Gallery.
