Alex Chinneck’s expansive practice continues to blur distinctions between creative genres through collaborations with a number of specialist organsiations and individuals.  Working together with British Illustrator Matthew Gaffen, Concrete Rug represents a crystallization of Alex Chinneck’s investigations into concrete and the boundaries of its material capabilities.

The spiralling vortex of Whirlpool Table and its potential for visual trickery and illusory depth has been an ongoing source of inspiration for Alex Chinneck over a period of time. As with other key works within the artist’s practice, the material is the subject, and Chinneck coaxes quite remarkable things from the overlooked, almost invisible ‘stuff’ of our built environment.
