About

For our March show, Luke Gottelier will be responding to the DOLPH brief by moving into the space for the month and adding to his ongoing ‘Home Improvement’ series that involves torturing and reutilising a group of failed paintings from 2004-2005. So far he has made a painting into a remote control car, an ashtray, a postcard, an electric guitar and a candlestick.

“This comes from Duchamp’s idea of the ‘reversed readymade’ – turn a Rembrandt into an ironing board. Except I’m using my own paintings. I couldn’t afford Rembrandt’s.” 

Temporarily relocating his studio to Streatham and surrounding himself with the books, music and resources that inspire, Gottelier will aim to make sense of the upheaval by producing a piece of work that explores his predicament.
