Dacia Gallery is pleased to present Christina Massey’s Salva Veritate solo exhibition. Christina’s works depict the unharmed truth about the economic recession, bank bailouts and the emotional strains placed upon innocent families in the wake of its aftermath. Her works are physical fragments of the new and old, success and failure. They are also bits and pieces of her own past and present, likes and dislikes. Through donated business attire from banks and corporate employees, Christina re-purposed this fabric and hand stitched it together with sections of her own failed works on canvas. The results are organic, quilt-like surfaces made from painted canvas where the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious influence of the khakis, collared shirts and nylons lay within the composition as reminders of the ever present influence of money on the creation and promotion of art.
