ABOUT

“LOVE, SEX, OBSESSION, DEATH & ALL THE DIRT AND POETRY BETWEEN.”

THE DnA FACTORY MRSS ARE DALLAS & ANGEL [B. 1967]  Artistic & life collaborators since 1990 in a vast range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, collage, photomontage, textiles, design, illustration, photography, poetry.

OUR WORK involves an exploration of the world we all live in; we’re political beasts and react and respond as many artistically inclined people will do by creating, in which ever form is appropriate; we work together on every aspect. There are many recurring themes explored in our work, from looking at the politics of the body, of genders and sexuality to the wider social and political implications and implementations that shape our world.

For a number of years we have been creating works dealing with consumerism and the capitalist model, feeding our use of reclaimed or recycled objects and materials; we have a love of transmuting a discarded item into something ‘other’, unexpected or unrecognisable in terms of its previous incarnation. We have a passion for material experimentation, discovering limits and moving beyond those limitations.

OUR STYLE IS BEST DESCRIBED AS POST-PUNK-BAROQUE MIXED WITH A LARGE DOLLOP OF SURREALISM, A TOUCH OF POP AND A SCOOP OF EXPRESSIONISM, VISCERAL FOR SURE AND VERY UNAPOLOGETIC.

ACTIVE MEMBERS of Chelsea Arts Club and since 2015 have been part of the extremely hard working and ultra-talented Ball Design Committee, responsible for creating and upholding the grand tradition of The Arts Club Balls from their time held at The Royal Albert Hall to their equally [in]famous, ‘though slightly smaller, events held in Old Church Street.
