“Hat Motif”.

“Hat Motif”,was created at the old disused Kangol hat making factory in Cleator Moor ,West Cumbria. The artwork was embossed on a metal sliding door and is made up of words copied out from a discarded hat catalogue written around an image of a hat sketched out just prior to the writing. The words push out and amplify the simple shape thus suggesting a brand or motif. The artwork took four hours to create in between the rain showers pouring through the roofless building. My time to work and experiment in the factory may be limited as the whole site is due for demolition at any time.
