Andy Davey: Golden Rough
27 September – 21 October 2000
Andy Davey is a Sydney based artists whose primary artistic medium is gold. Using both 24 carat precious gold leaf, and the discarded wrappers of ‘Golden Rough’ chocolates, Davey invokes the age-old desire for gold as well as our related contemporary desire to consume it. In this Olympic Year, Davey’s installation at Gallery 4A, is timely, making comment on the “Going for Gold” desire for success, sports, winning, and the gold medals of the Olympic Games.
