Larry McGinity
'The Financial Crisis Show: Art as a Derivative'
6th January-1st February 2014
Hay Hill Gallery’s 2014 exhibition schedule is set to open with Larry McGinity’s hotly anticipated project ‘The Financial Crisis Show: Art as a Derivative’. On show from the 6th January-1st February, the work weaves together a dramatic historical discourse with beautifully structured bands of colour. McGinity’s show is a theatrical demonstration of complex financial networks; his bright comet tails shoot past leaving us trails of information.

Offering a very human take on the situation, the darkly humorous pieces read like tragi-comedy. The text is laid under and over, measured out in a tapestry of voices that keep interrupting each other. Reds, pinks and blues are pixelated like newsprint from the brand new headlines of the morning commute, to the free papers blackening the pavement after rush hour. A morse code of dots and dashes remind us structurally of places we know; Wall Street is a wide white strip, the Gherkin is made up of curving diagonals. Busily intersecting lines are reminiscent of the London tube map, telephone wires, water pipes and electricity cables- the internal workings of a city.

With the benefit of hindsight, McGinity’s show gives new perspective to the developing financial turmoil, super-gluing together the hyped up house of cards. His works are cautionary tales that reveal how we got here and why these lessons still need learning.

With the compliments of the Hay Hill Gallery the pleasure of your
company is requested to attend the private view of the exhibition
'The Financial Crisis Show: Art as a Derivative’ by Larry McGinity.
The exhibition will be held alongside a wonderful sculpture collection
