The Disintegrating Space series is inspired by the architecture found in three affordable areas of London: Peckham, Brixton and Lewisham. Through translating the bright colours, patterns and unusual structural forms of the architecture found in these places, I strove to portray their exciting atmospheres. I wanted to signify the importance of affordable areas of London for the creative community, alongside persistent gentriﬁcation and the ever-growing London housing crisis. The artworks represent these places as exciting creative hubs, full of opportunities and inspiration, provided by creative, resourceful people and shared with all.
This work in particular was inspired by Brixton. This is where David Bowie was born and where there is a mural dedicated to him. I translated fragments of this into the artwork.
