“Building on her colloquial title of Pop Artist for the 21st century, primary Instincts expands on Coady’s earlier works using pills as an encapsulation of our vices. In this exhibition, plastic pills and paintings explode in bright reds, yellows, blues and greens, evocative of childhood learning and games, creating a sense of familiarity and awakening our understanding of the complex layers of our conditioning from childhood. Primary Instincts peels back the layers of addiction, tying our dependency on medication to the manipulation of our most basic needs, security, comfort and control.”
Coady’s ‘Primary Instincts’ is showing now at Finkelstein Gallery. Join us this week. Our opening hours are Wed-Fri 11-5, Sat 12-5.
