Palette Parasite at Cornerhouse

Ok so the first Palette Parasite is now up at Cornerhouse galleries, so get those eagle eyes out and looking next time you are in Manchester. More coming to a gallery near you soon......

Some more about the project

Keep your eyes open whilst visiting galleries this spring. Andrew Bracey has left his latest creations on the outside walls of four galleries across England. A Palette Parasite is a by-product of the painter’s day and the labour of the studio: the left over splodges of paint that do not make it as far as the finished painting. Bracey uses the excess paint to form tiny coral-like structures, in the process making the wasteful into something of more consequence. These have been surreptitiously attached to the exterior architecture of the galleries. In keeping with the contrary nature of these works, they deny the white cube interior as well as the status of painting, becoming something of a hybrid in the process. Palette Parasite can, or rather might be found at Ikon, Birmingham; Wolverhampton Art Gallery; Cornerhouse, Manchester and The Collection, Lincoln.

Here is the first Palette Parasite in a secret location.
Keep a look out when you next visit a gallery to see if one has made its way onto the exterior wall or check back here soon for more details.
