Kenny Laurenson has been involved in art, design, music and photography since graduating from London’s Ravensbourne School of Art in 1987. His photomontage series ‘Statuesque’ expresses his long fascination with perception. “Statues in cities are almost invisible yet they depict powerful stories and characters from an era when visual information was so rare. Statues have gravity, beauty, craft and hold an eternal value. I endeavour to bring them new context, new life, new perspective”. Laurenson takes a traditional dark room approach, a crafted ‘dodge and burn’ technique, utilising digital technology. Artworks are available as archival reverse prints onto aluminium or digital c-type prints all of exceptional quality.
