Salvagepunk – ‘the post-apocalyptic vision of a broken and dead world, strewn with both the dream residues and real junk of the world that was.'

The darkly fretted, complex spaces and textural thickets of Struan’s metal plate etchings combine the traditions of British drawing and printmaking. They relish the linear and textured complexities of factory smokestacks, railway lines, bare trees in winter, construction site scaffolds, dockside cranes in grimy shipyards, gnarly wharf timbers and corded masts. The graphic romanticism of skeletal structure and patinated surface is reborn in Struan’s work through a dark amalgam with the corrosive nastiness of post-industrial grime and decay. Heavy metal clamour. Dirty glamour. A post-cubist steampunk brutalism runs through the techno-tangles of Struan’s acid-etched, scraped, polished, pressed and printed cartographies of ruin.
