An image of a nuclear power station from a 1950's encyclopedia provided the initial source material for this drawing.
From a distance the drawings give the illusion of being photocopied or painted; closer inspection reveals the intricate process of collage.
Painstakingly created clusters of black ‘grip tape’ jar with sections that are intentionally erased. Irregularities and imperfections in the printing of the source material are emphasised, dots and dashes become replicated gestures; the drawing becomes more expressive, organic and tactile.
