Danny Pockets’ work is an an aggregation of forms and ideas that transcend the material from which they are constructed. Employing a variety of media from paint on canvas to sound and light Pockets art emerges from his highly developed studio practice. His artworks chart a culture in movement, observe the cancellations left as the landscape remodels itself, objects that slowly rise to the surface in the wake of these late days of Capitalism, the post-modern sublime. A blue bag flutters in a tree, a quiet voice hums a tune as it passes us in the street and overhead a bulb flickers to intermittently illuminate the disappearing typology of our streets. Pockets documents and asks us to regard and observe its beauty before such things are lost forever.
