Artist: Stefan Gougherty
Method: Repurposed London bus panel
Size: 45 x 28cm
"The scrap aluminium panel from London's iconic double decker red bus is a fascinating artifact and has enough to say on its own. I am pretending not to have altered this object ' instead I am presenting the panel as-is, a coincidental cropping of typical graphics printed on urban infrastructure combined with an amateur marker tag that creates a new message" - Stefan Gougherty
Drawing upon his technical design background, Stefan Gougherty creates jewellery that is both a celebration and critique of industrial progress. With content mined from opposing forces such as trash/ treasure, ancient/ future, natural/ artificial—his work mirrors the paradox (and humour) of this strange world we inhabit.
