INSPIRATION: CHEN CHEN AND KAI WILLIAMS





The work of Chen Chen and Kai Williams is like a series of gross alien body parts. It's almost gruesome to look at these works, but the colours used are childish, soft, cute, the kind of colours you'd normally associate with flowerbeds or gummy sweets. You can really see how much experimentation has gone into the making of each work, all these methods, materials and ideas that are totally unlike anything I've seen before. I couldn't stop looking at that first image of the plaster oozing through a net bag and thinking about how something so simple could create such an interesting result, and the imperfection of it that makes it so interesting and organic. It looks like an mythical reptile shedding it's skin, and I love the way the pattern mimics the patter
