The Shoe People Paisley are an early experiment in which I create memeplexes comprised of characters from the children's TV show The Shoe People alongside sampled versions of historical patterns. These are colour-field painting, which push the pictorial logic of series from CAPSID such as Cytoplasm, enabling me to rethink the pictorial field as a cell, which can be re-engineered.
