In the end, the exhibition has a sense of exploration, as Stroud follows the thread of previous ideas and meanders into new territory. Playing on the aesthetics of consumer culture but somehow linking the works back to specific consumers is an intriguing part of the exhibition, but the artist seems wary of overemphasizing that element. As Stroud plucks debris from the rising river of consumerism that surrounds us, he finds a kind of elegance in the happy, bright and shiny plastic that contains, dispenses and promotes the solutions to our multifarious needs.
