Sylvie Fleury is a Swiss contemporary pop artist born in 1961. Her work addresses issues of consumerism, excess and luxury, while fusing the presentation strategies of both Pop and Minimal Art. Most conically she has exhibited neon signs of fashion logos and bags filled with recent purchases made by the artist in designer shops. She has typically appropriated objects touching feminine desires of all sorts by coating them in gold or silver colour: supermarket trolley, shoes, water bottles and more. In recent years, she explored the imagery of extra-terrestrials and new-age religion, to reproduce larger-than-life toy rockets, mushrooms, pendulums and glowing crystals.
