    About The Work

    Junk by Keith Coventry, is a portfolio of nine new prints, five etchings and four lithographs. The series depicts highly detailed segments of the McDonald’s logo—the etchings in minimalist colours of yellow, red and blue, and the lithographs in black and white. Fragments of the crumpled remnants of McDonald’s wrappers are cropped and positioned within the rectangle of the print in such a way that they become iconic Constructivist compositions. In these prints, he conveys an enduring interest in the dark side of idealism: urban decay and mass consumerism. Coventry says of the series, “I have always been interested in hard, clear, and repeatable images, rather than an atmospheric quality. The color is provided by the McDonald’s logo, and the white or blank space represents a purity, edging out the commercial image in favor of a more abstract composition.”
