Consumer criticism in gold

With this publication, Keith Coventry (*1958, Burnley, Great Britain) presents an overview of his oeuvre from its beginnings in the early 1990s to the present day, shedding light on his exploration of the legacy of modernism and post-modernism. In his series Junk Paintings (2012), for example, a new visual vocabulary containing elements of the famous McDonald’s logo shifts into focus, blending with Minimalism and Pop Art. In the white Pure Junk Paintings (2015/16) he continues his work with these formal elements, but using new materials: wood, muslin, beeswax, glass, and gesso lend the paintings a sculptural presence. The same is true of the series Golden Arches (2016), for which parts of the McDonald’s logo were cast in bronze and heavily gold plated, contrasting a cheap, mass produced commodity with materials representing permanence, craft, and value. In Coventry’s art the consumer world and mass production encounter an aesthetic characterized by beauty and timelessness.
