“…the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.”

Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents London, 2012, Skullphone’s much-anticipated solo exhibition in conjunction with the XXXXXX XXXXXXXX. Comprised of Skullphone’s hand-painted Digital Media series and sculpture installation, London, XX12 encapsulates the spirit of the XXXXXXX XXXXX within the context of contemporary Great Britain. Reflection paintings depict the United Kingdom’s celebration and tumult. Rectangular paintings show Skullphone’s “advertisement” in rotation with British branding. The adjoining sculpture installation features a work cast from the artist’s foot and adorned with customized running socks — a reflective display of street art, studio practice and marketability — equally representing mankind’s life on the run and the eternal desire for faster, higher, stronger.

Skullphone’s Digital Media paintings are calculated fabrications for indoor viewing, a departure from the large-scale outdoor work for which he first became known. The paintings document our modern world – one which is increasingly defined by connection and communication via brief technological encounters. Here, advertising, government, private enterprise signage, real- and digital-scapes are represented. This work employs a deliberate grid system of red, blue, and green paint applied to reflective aluminum panels one dot at a time, creating pointillistic images that dislocate when approached.
