Timothy Davies – Forever Teddy Complex

SANDY BROWN is delighted to present Forever Teddy Complex by Timothy Davies. This is the artist's third solo exhibition at the gallery.

Coined for the recent fast-fashion trend in teddy bear fabrics (which also, and positively, represents a move away from the use of actual fur), the 'Teddy Bear Complex', or, more simply 'Teddy Complex', describes the tendency to present the self as a surprise gift to the world. Grown-ups dressed like teddy bears can be seen as symptomatic of the Teddy Complex, exhibiting a resistance to 'adulting' (and a logical next step on from the shutting-out-the-world statement of last season's signature duvet coat).
