New York, NY-
“Consumer culture has become an incredibly dominant force in our lives. While humanity would once follow passionately behind religious or political leaders we now find the same passion vouching for our favorite consumer brands. Currency symbols as well as brand logos have become some of the most recognizable iconography present in our daily lives—It feels as if power lies where the cash is.” -David Cash
Superposition Gallery is pleased to present "CA$H ONLY," a solo exhibition of artworks by David Cash (b. 1997), who interprets the inherent connections in one’s identity between art, fashion, and commercial culture. The artworks employ many interpretations of how one is confronted with aesthetic obsession through consumerism and how it affects our relationships and identities. Cash utilizes film, photographic prints and works on canvas and clothing. The works were made specifically for the exhibition, in tandem with Cash’s recent New York Fashion Week collaboration with the brand, Tumblr & Tipsy, owned by Michael Kuluva. Some works include CAPITALISTIC ANGST, (2018) and SOLACE IN CONSUMERISM, (2018); which are photographic portraits against a backdrop of rainbow dollar signs, BLUE CHIP ARBITRAGE, (2018) and MONEY LOVES EVERYONE, (2018), which depict the singled-out motifs that Cash uses throughout his work, painted and stretched on canvas.
Cash works with multiple organizations promoting the importance of self-reflection and identity, including the Canadian Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, Pride Toronto, and RAW, a fashion brand focusing on sustainability. Storm Ascher, owner of Superposition Gallery, worked with Cash on how to place his artworks in a brick & mortar context, while both having an affinity for socially conscious approaches to art and fashion.
