THE GOLD ROOM

THE GOLD ROOM makes direct references to popular culture iconography, including design graphics and imagery from the movie The Shining, vinyl record labels and English punk band TenPole Tudor. These references are mixed up and edged with gold to present a new rereading of the original source. THE GOLD ROOM presents the power of the icon and how something might gain cult recognition, whilst still retaining a dual reading. A combination of sculpture and wall works, where gold governs and humour and irony rule.
