Chris Coy presented solo exhibition A Little Death at Los Angeles’ Anat Ebgi, which ran from September 10 until October 22, 2016.
Coy’s new body of work considers the visual language of rococo through a mix of sculpture and painting. The installation explores varied depictions of Fragonard’s 1767 painting ‘The Swing’ through a variety of media, including high-density foam, dye-sublimated aluminium print, MDF, Etched mirrors, and rose gold plated steel among others.
The work places itself within the movement’s attentiveness to surface aesthetics and to the haptic nature of modern interfaces.**
