Palimpset – Variations
London, UK. (2020)
Palimpset – Variations is a collection of photographs of the paint covering the side panels of the Westbourne Bridge Terrace, in London.
To suppress graffiti, council workers applied patterns of colour and created a variation of designs reminiscent of abstract expressionism.
The variety of colour, shapes, sizes and placements conveys a dynamic structure evocative of a musical symphony or a language such as the Morse code.
The work acknowledges and celebrates this unexpected, playful output.
