As a culmination of his Stanley Picker Design Fellowship at Kingston University, Michael Marriott presents "You say Volvo, I say Potato…", a new solo show that investigates alternative means of marking and colouring plywood with methods that don't rely on out-sourced services but rather on manual processes, such as potato printing.
A recurring feature in much of Marriott's work, printing on plywood allows for certain qualities of everyday items, such as the utilitarian constructions and graphics of packing cases, to be introduced into his formal language and counterbalance the slickness of so much of the designed world. In this spirit, his Fellowship research was led by the desire to gain more control over the process of printing and achieve raw and non-uniform outcomes that could preserve the existing texture of the material surface, as opposed to the perfect-looking results obtained through digital printing.
