Working across a multitude of media; drawing, sculpture, text, ready-mades, sound and film, Dolphin's current work re-authors and re-stages the last works and final notes of the icons of music, literature and film, alongside the heartfelt, earnest graffiti left by fans on banal objects such as doors and park benches.
Simultaneously critiquing and subject to the motivations and tensions surrounding these intensely personal and also very public items, Dolphin opens up this peculiar economy of text and mark making through the sheer force of his labour.
