UNDERGROUND FOUNDATION


The creativity found underground in the cycle of existence.

The ascending and receding patterns painted on the walls, graffiti.

The marks show the colours on the rough cinder block.

The  fragility and toughness.

We have arrived at a historical dead-end.






A basement dwelling from the  pre demolition of the 1950’s. The  oldest boy was given the room in the basement to live so he could stoke the coal fire. The brightly painted  basements of Regent South have their own stories of habitation. The  juxtaposition of these images creates the narrative.

Evidence of a layer of coal and ash in the patterns of soil beneath Regent.
