Profile

Examining the relationship between the historic or already existing, and the contemporary or new, Colin Booth’s work has both a personal narrative and a broader reference to early modernism and the built environment. Using objects and text to research and develop his ideas, Colin collects reclaimed wood and pre-used objects, juxtaposing these with custom-made, pristine additions.

Primarily interested in the relationship between form, function, art and craft and the fragmentary and transient nature of materials, Colin likes to work with once-functioning objects and through a transformative process, re-position them for consideration as art.

Born in Gateshead, Colin ives and works in St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex
