Richard Galpin

Richard Galpin strips photographs to reveal a fragmented set of forms in spatial compositions. His work began with scaffolding, scouring and peeling away the surface emulsion in specific areas to leave only the scaffolding part. This transformed through to rollercoasters, cities and into futuristic spaces. Galpin engages with modernist abstraction, constructivism and futurism, as well as the formality of the photography process. Through this profess, there is a reconfiguration of space where new forms emerge. It is not quite a representation of negative versus positive space, but it certainly leaves you to think.
