Industrial Contemporary Fine Art.
Simple designs and shapes given iconic status.
I am an industrial screenprinter based in Westgate. I intersperse my industrial work with my art work. Consequently my art practice has an industrial feel. I classify my work as Industrial Contemporary Fine Art (I.C.F.A.).
I use driftwood and give it ‘star treatment’. I wash, clean, and apply three or four coats of paint to make perfect again, almost manufactured looking. This process places each piece metaphorically on a rostrum.
My early influences were artists Frank Stella and Philip Guston. Recently I am inspired by artists Harland Miller and Gerherdt Richter.
