"Brutalist" is a series of abstract architectural studies based on instinctive and explorative responses to spaces both positive and negative in dimensions. Not aiming to be descriptive of context or in favour of any one viewpoint of architecture, the project is unhindered by the objectives of outside direction. It looks at some of the last surviving, great, brutalist buildings in the UK. The palette of concrete and its interaction with light is embraced within the encompassing atmospheric surroundings. Subtle diffusion sits alongside deep black. The ideals of the materials are amplified upon first experience and this still moment is carefully observed in the technical camera. Unreachable spaces are explored and focused upon, backgrounds and foregrounds gain equal or opposite significance, scale and perspective are distorted. The work is on-going.
