Dean Lane, Grafitti Archaeology
Bringing the outside in, images from the legendary South Bristol Skatepark, one of the birthplaces of the Bristol grafitti scene, a canvas of ramps and bowls, the site of over 50 years of continuous over painting and wear from skateboards and rollerblades. We were drawn to document not so much individual pieces of graffiti as the accumulation of marks, colour, and wear from continuous use.
Outside in, Orange and Prussian Blue
The elements, time, use, and chance give rise to surfaces with a subtlety, richness and sense of history that few artists can match. We harness this rich visual resource, bringing the outdoors in, through the creation of unique furnishing fabrics.
