Blue Curry works with found objects and commonplace items to create elegant sculptures and installations that challenge one's associations with the objects in use, effectively misusing everyday objects to strip them of their socioeconomic position. They become the raw materials of his idiosyncratic cultural production. Often drawing on the exoticized image of his Caribbean birthplace, he creates precise combinations that float between the ethnographic find, the tourist souvenir, and the contemporary art form. His work considers notions of authenticity, cliché, and image.
