I was commissioned by Eyestorm to create new cameraless photographs for Sir Terence Conran and Peter Prescott’s wine bar and restaurant, Lutyens, on Fleet Street in London in May 2016. The work is on display at Lutyens Wine Bar, 85 Fleet Street until May 2017, along with previous works, Autogenesis and Lensless Molecular.
The compositions feature circles that were produced by shining light through glasses of Conran & Prescott’s Albion Wines to create the coloured orbs in the final pieces. The opposite colours are captured onto light sensitive paper in a completely dark room. Subjecting the paper to a process of chemical baths develops the latent image and fixes it for permanence. The geometric lines and compositions are inspired by the modernist, art deco era architecture of the building, which was designed by the great British Architect, Edwin Lutyens in the 1930’s. The artworks are available to buy from Eyestorm
