‘Uniform’ (2018-2020)

A video and photo series created as part of the upcoming collaboration between painter Connor Tingley and skateboarder Curren Caples. Over three years (2017-2020), two large 20’ ramps were constructed in Tingley’s Los Angeles studio painted with iconography from our shared California influences. Curren skated over the wet-painted panels to tear through the layers and disrupt the art pieces to create new markings mirroring the convergence of cultures and forces surrounding Southern California. The art reflects the continual transition from day to night with gravity as the catalyst for the rhythm. Anticipated release in early 2021. Photographed entirely on a Hasselblad 503CW, an iconic camera at the beginning of skateboard photography, and filmed with the Alexa mini system.
