Tariq Alvi works intuitively, often recycling and re-contextualizing found printed matter from newspapers and magazine advertising, creating labour-intensive works which present us with both disarmingly simple and complex aesthetic forms that reflect upon contemporary society. Alvi’s current Chisenhale Gallery exhibition entitled The Meaning presents a group of sculptures, paintings and collages that meditate on the relationships between economy, desire and materiality. Alvi’s untitled limited edition, produced to accompany his Chisenhale Gallery show, depicts a pair of mirror balls, drawn freehand using a computer programme and placed at the centre of a large blank sheet, both emphasizing the intricacy of the drawing and the formal qualities of the image.
