Shapes and Colours is an ongoing project that brings together the work of painter Gary Simmonds and object-maker Matthew Harrison.

While Simmonds' interest lies in abstraction and decoration, Harrison deals with the functionality of art objects in relation to craft and design. Yet, a mutual interest in Dazzle camouflage has aligned the two practices in an unrestricted collaborative process.

With differing but related points of view, the convergence of Harrison and Simmonds' approaches has generated unexpected possibilities, which share the spirit and functionality of the historical development of Dazzle camouflage.

The exhibition at West Lane South will reveal the process of the continuing project, underpinned by a focus on the structure and aesthetics of the bicycle frame, which forms a departure point for the unpicking of divisions between fine art and design.
