"After falling in love with the dying craft of sign painting, Archie Proudfoot set out to learn the skills of the trade from old books and a community of sign painters leading the renaissance in the practice. These works may at first glance look simple but they are far from it. A huge amount of work is involved, and the meticulous technique of reverse-glass gilding, and the geometry and physical interplay of the letterforms result in an aesthetically striking artwork that finds the perfect balance between the traditional and contemporary. All the signs are created by hand from start to finish, even down to the metalwork of the steel frame, giving each work a genuinely unique feel. "
