Blue Curry

Blue Curry works with found objects and commonplace items to create his elegant works. He misuses and repurposes things, stripping away their socioeconomic position and making them the raw materials of his own idiosyncratic cultural production. His precise combinations, floating ambiguously between the visual territories of the ethnographic find, the tourist souvenir and the contemporary art form, consider notions of authenticity, cliché and image. By removing his unnamed sculptures from instant recognition and providing no cipher with which to interpret them, the artist assigns a mysterious and fantastical quality to the everyday.

Blue Curry was born in Nassau, Bahamas in 1974. He earned an MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, London and a BA in Photography and Multimedia at The University of Westminster, London. He was selected for inclusion in the Catlin Guide to the top 40 emerging UK artists in 2010 and was profiled in a two-part BBC documentary on graduate artists in the same year. He has exhibited widely, having participated in the 6th Liverpool Biennial and group shows at the V&A Museum, the Art Museum of the Americas, and The World Bank, among many others. He had his first institutional solo show at the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Germany in 2011. He lives and works in London and Nassau.
