Simon Pyle is a Californian based artist who has taken photography into new artistic directions. His concrete art print photography uses found concrete slabs as the canvas. The unusual backdrop gives his work an edgy look, amplified by the cityscape images on the rough hewn slabs.
He said, “If cities have a collective memory, it’s in their structures and in the cracks, liminal spaces where forgotten debris can filter in and unseen growth can take root.”
The images shown here are from his Midden City collection. His and Concrete Golem collection is another one which uses his adapted pigment transfer technique. His inspiration for these collections comes from fresco paintings on plaster.
