Ruffin Gallery

Theo Mullen | With Small Changes There is a slab of concrete that was once a factory floor. What remains are various bits of material used by local skaters as obstacles. What strikes me is the directness and simplicity in creating what seemed to me as formal sculptures full of movement and transition. Through a photography and sculpture installation I challenged myself to use the material within the reclaimed skate park to create a series of arrangements employing a similar aesthetic. The sculptures draw from the raw and archetypal material used in creating DIY skate parks.
