Andrea Medjesi-Jones’ (Abbey Fellow in Painting, January – March 2014) drawings and paintings draw influence from social and political movements of post-war Europe.  These historical references are introduced in the work through a series of material gestures (masking tape stencils, cut-outs, collages).  In the series of works presented for March Mostra, these gestures assume a ruinous and monumental quality, giving physical form to Medjesi-Jones’ ongoing interest in the long history of failed ideologies.

I disegni e i dipinti di Andrea Medjesi-Jones (Abbey Fellow in Painting, gennaio – marzo 2014) traggono ispirazione da vari movimenti sociali e politici del dopo guerra Europeo.  Questi riferimenti storici vengono introdotti nel suo lavoro attraverso l’uso di una serie di gesti materiali (stencil, ritagli, collages).  Nella serie di lavori presentati in occasione di March Mostra, questi gesti assumono una qualità monumentale, dando forma fisica all’interesse dell’artista nella lunga storia di ideologie fallite.
