5 Panels in Ritherdon Mix Grey

Mild steel sheet metal covered in 'Dead Powder' to the point of resistance. 'Dead Powder' is the small amount of waste cleaned from the powder coating spray booth after every job. It accumulates in a large IBC tub. The overall colour of this waste changes as a result of the various jobs processed in the paint shop. 'Dead powder' works document this colour change over time. Each panel measures 230 x 115 x 0.5 cm. Installation at Bury Sculpture Centre 2019. Works produced as part of Return to Ritherdon, a project based on a two-year artist placement at Ritherdon & Co Ltd, a manufacturer or steel enclosures based in Darwen Lancashire.
