The Manchester Contemporary
Thursday, October 27, 2011 to Sunday, October 30, 2011
Andrew Bracey is an artist based in Manchester. For Manchester Contemporary 2011, Castlefield Gallery will be showing his most recent body of work ReconFigure Paintings, which features the artist’s alterations to well-known reproductions of historical paintings. Every human figure and piece of clothing have been ‘painted out’ of the original composition with geometric, triangular shapes, forcing our vision to oscillate between the artist’s ‘painterly’ additions and the usually obscured mise en scene of original photographic reproduction. Devising a set of guidelines for the creative process, the entirely unique images have been playfully transformed with suggestively haunting undertones.
Solo shows include Manchester Art Gallery, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Transition Gallery, London, Mid Pennine Gallery, Burnley and firstsite, Colchester. In 2010 he curated UnSpooling - artists and cinema at Cornerhouse, Manchester with fellow artist, Dave Griffiths. Throughout October he is on a residency at Standpoint Gallery in London.
