Reflective and White

In a previous conversation about Health and Safety it was brought up that a lot of environments that have a high level of Health and Safety are free of dust and dirt and workers wear white hazard suits.
The colours taken from this were silver and white as they represent sterile areas.

In Case Of Emergency

Following on from my last post, the combination of colour and pattern are important elements in the sculptural forms I am creating. Along side this the use of various typography also gives different messages and gets different reactions even if the words are the same.
It is a departure from the Health and Safety artefacts but not an immediate one as key elements are being re-examined, and re-interpreted.

Key Elements

Form and sculptural elements are now being introduced into new work.
Health and safety artefacts use architectural features in a strict way.
This new work will look at all these features and create unfamiliar semiotics to blur the lines between form and function and aesthetics

In further developments using different shapes have made accidental but key forms used in Health and Safety labels

The next step for these pieces are to incorporate them into an installation so the artefact becomes part of the work and the line between genuine artefact and a piece of art ar blurred.

These are the first few lines for the artefact to sit amoungst

Fire Door Keep Shut

As dazzle camoflague has become a key area of my work, and the theme of Health and Safety runs through all my work, I am introducing existing Health and Safety artefacts to create the camoflague with a combination of colour and pattern.

Drawing Structure

I have been looking at my drawings that can be found here:

And have been looking for a while now at a way of making them more complex with a structure that can relate to Health and Safety. Whilst doing the painting job, I saw these lights

anonymous substructure

The latest venture into Health and Safety work.
Not giving away too much just yet.

In addition to the structure I have a new stretcher for paintings
Canvas doesnt say health and safety, but a metal frame with stretched plastic and rubber does!

tshirt concept designs

I have been thinking for a while about creating a line of t-shirts that use graphics and illustration (not an original idea I know). But I wanted to put my own stamp on one word and create designs around the formation and shapes of the letters.


The Hungry Black Dog Supper Club

I have been approached by an old friend to design the logo for his supper club, and have been throwing around a few ideas.
