Dublin - Docklands

This is an ongoing project in which a series of public artworks are photographed. These artworks are graffiti removals, mostly painted and colloquially known as 'buffs'. The compositions are researched by fine-art painter Stephen Burke and documented through analogue photography by Dublin based photographer, Fiachra Corcoran and occasionally Stephen Burke also. These artworks show the making process of painterly compositions in urban environments, however, they are being created as a by-product of eradicating graffiti. This process of layering references many traditional painting methods while also creating a new context for itself outside of typical contemporary art boundaries due to its exposure to the public and how open it is to interjection and influence from people and natural elements. Within this project we are linking these post vandalism paintings to formalist methods of making and challenging the viewers perception of what painting can be.
