SadlerGreen has been involved with a further collaboration with innovative ceramic artist, Robert Dawson, who has recently completed an exterior ceramic tile mural commission working with the new Sedgemoor Dementia Care Centre in Liverpool.
Dawson, well-known for his "aesthetic sabotage" brand of creative design, is a specialist in tiled wall murals and was on site permanently to check the progress of the mural installation. The innovative centre took 18 months of planning, design and construction and its aim is to provide a model for dementia-friendly design; delivering a range of social and health services in an open and welcoming environment.
The artist, who studied at Camberwell College of Arts and the Royal College of Art, has created a definitive ideology, focussing on the disconcerting, uncertain elements of artistry within his creations. Dawson incorporates both ceramic historical sources and also the most recent innovative print technologies within his artwork. It involves a consideration of the nature of surface decoration, using historical processes as well as reflections upon other phenomena of the ceramic surface, for example technical flaws within the production process. He applies advanced photographic deformation and computerised image processing techniques to tiles or plates, creating unusual perspectives and deforming traditional decorative motifs.
The artist has worked with prestigious companies such as Wedgwood, John Lewis, Hilton
, Selfridges and Habitat, using his signature designs to create patterns that play with your senses, morphing and warping across the products, to create a product that is ultimately very pleasing but different and unique.
