BRISTOL DOCKS: GRAFFITI

1/1

This work was inspired by water, graffiti, letters and numbers found around the Bristol Dock area and graffiti behind Spike Print studios. Also spurring artistry were traffic road signs, a temporary Helter Skelter and several 1940’s Tank Wagons - with their rusting and decaying surfaces (originally used for transporting goods). In response, Maxine drew delicate ink drawings on mark-resist (clear acetate) before screen printing.

 

Maxine creates unique one-off, abstract images by layering a growing library of gestural marks; influenced by structures, colours, and shapes taken from the surrounding environment, combining multiple print processes with palimpsest-like erasure, capturing the essence of surfaces forgotten by time. Giving new life to the discarded and disregarded, thus appreciating the beauty in what may be deemed ugly.
