Crushed
Kavel Raferty

25th November – mid January 2021

A selection of old coke cans, collected from the streets of Thanet. A pop art piece using this iconic brand, reminiscent of Warhol of course, but also a comment on the rubbish left in our towns. The original uniformity of these mass produced tins has been destroyed, yet are still recognizable. Each Coca-Cola tin has now become unique with damage and decay.

For this installation at the Shop Front, Kavel has used limited edition lithograph prints as a repeat, treating them as wallpaper.

Kavel is an artist & illustrator who combines drawing, found imagery, print and paint in her work. She’s now based at the nearby Resort Studios and you can see more of her work on her site at kavelrafferty.com. A limited edition of the crushed print is available from her web shop here.
