There used to be a trailer parked in Venice upon which was flatly stated in cheap stick-on letters that its occupant was “no one you know”.
This terse phrase and its layered notions of identity, anonymity, and personal space instantly fascinated me, as did its trailer context – disguising its owner and embodying the ambiguous condition of mobility and constraint.
Please join us as we unveil new paintings and sculpture by Blue McRight, exploiting private and public space, room to move and space to roam, while carrying everything you own. Prepared for anything or ready to run? Freewheeling or on the lam? These paintings make me laugh both with and at anxiety, and in the midst of it all stands Holly Mascott: a living example of Blue McRight’s brightest ideals and most twisted moments, made available to all the world throughout the spring here at Samuel Freeman.
