peeled architecture

Richard Galpin abstracts photographs of urban spaces and architecture, and transforms them into graphic fragments with a three-dimensional appearance, in pattern-like surfaces which reflect the formal repetition and dynamism of big-city architecture. Although formally Richard Galpin moves further and further away from the original photograph with every work he creates, the removal of many of the principal pictorial elements often highlights the perspectives and pictorial composition of the original photo.
The resulting spaces and structural clusters then appear like extracts from a reality which is visually entirely overloaded.
