Monroe's utopian architecture*

Another nice surprise I had during my recent visit to London was an unexpected sighting of Ian Monroe's work at Haunch of Venison.  Although I have seen his works in books and catalogues before, it was my first time seeing his large scale collage in real life.  Usually monochromatic or in highly contrasting colours, Monroe built his utopian architecture using adhesive vinyl on perspex or metals.

*Utopian Architecture is the title of a group exhibition Monroe's work was featured in at Upstairs Berlin, 2005.
