Richard Galpin produces dynamic and fantastical works that are derived from the artist's own photographs of chaotic cityscapes. Using only a scalpel Galpin intricately scores and peels away the emulsion from the surface of the photograph until a new order appears. Negative thus becomes positive: new worlds are made from the bones of the old.
