Brick & Mortar Tinting

Far too often new bricks selected for extensions or repair works fail to blend adequately with the surrounding brickwork. Likewise, differences in mortar colour can make a big difference to the overall appearance. The photos of our work below demonstrate that even in extreme cases, corrections can be made.

Stone & Concrete Tinting

It is possible to successfully tint other types of masonry including concrete, roof tiles, render and some types of stone. Colour inconsistencies in precast stone can usually be fixed in this way.

Shibboleth at the tate modern

It was an impressive sight to behold. Doris Salcedo created ‘Shibboleth’, a chasm that ran the entire length of the Turbine Hall with the aim of drawing attention to divisions in modern day society. Ms Salcedo and Tate Modern did not wish to elaborate on how the piece was made, however it is sufficient to say that Brick Image Ltd were appointed to camouflage the new concrete used for the installation. Reactions from the press following the launch confirmed just how convincing our work had been.

Quote from the artist:

‘I am deeply thankful for the great job you did, your work was very professional and much more. I really appreciate your knowledge, creativity, and the great attitude you had throughout those long days.’

Quotes from the press:

Guardian article
‘The piece is by Colombian sculptor Doris Salcedo and is set to divide public opinion, not just to debate if it is art, but how it actually got there’
The Times 09/10/2007
‘The question of those who secured a first glimpse of the work today was how exactly it had been created’
The Evening Standard 08/10/2007
‘What we want to know is how Salcedo got the crack to appear in the first place.. No one, in short, has the slightest clue’
The Guardian 10/10/2007
It's an extremely well-achieved effect. The view from the entrance is delightful. It is a remarkable sight to see, and to imagine how it was made is another source of wonder. There is no sign at all of heavy work. It's as if the crack really had just appeared, overnight’
The Independent 09/10/2007
‘With part of your mind, you completely accept the reality of the cracked floor, but, with the other, rational part, you wonder whether what your eyes see can possibly be true. The effect is disconcerting because you find yourself trapped between knowing and not knowing’
