NEWSText: Satsuki Miyanishi

This is the first solo exhibition of works by Chris Hipkiss at the Jack Hanley Gallery. Works by the artists are represented in several collections, including the Collection Antoine de Galbert, Paris; the Cindy Sherman Collection, New York; and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. 


Christopher Payen and Alpha Mason met at the age of 18 in a case of love at first sight. Since the late eighties, the couple has worked under various names in parts of the United Kingdom before breaking from British Suburbia in 2001 for the French countryside. Now under the pseudonym “Chris Hipkiss”, the result of their 20+-year collaboration is a singular and multifarious visual language. Populating these vast, subsuming metropolises and more intimate scenes of a city’s interior, their vocabulary reflects long-developed interests in politics, travel, ornithology, as well as feminism and femininity.
