Celebratory paintings incorporating print, wax and pigment, and an installation of sculptures using upcycled everyday items. Paintings are investigations of layered space created through the dynamics of colour relationships and gestural marks. Tintotem Parade includes 15 new sculptures made from stacked tin cans and everyday items that explore the Counter- monument.

Debby’s inspiration comes from diverse sources: textiles and temporary wall decorations from India, often made by women, musical rhythms and the textures and colours of the countryside in the Eden Valley. The paintings are about being in the moment and making paintings where memory, experience and imagination can coalesce.

Gary describes his sculptures as a Counter Monument, as they reference architectural motifs and images typically found and commemorated in the traditional Public Monument. Gary’s alternative collection of monuments while still utilising plinths, the pedestal, different kinds of columns and towers are not for example made of stone or bronze, but stacks of discarded tins, transformed by colour to celebrate the value of upcycling.
