SPACE FOR REDEVELOPMENT 

2015

Hand cut paper 150cm x 90cm

 

Space for redevelopment is a sprawling rhizomatic form constructed from hand-cut layers of paper.    It is intended to be a section of a much larger, undefined landscape and refers to both physical and virtual topographies and structures.

Made from an estimated one hundred and twenty layers of hand-cut Fabriano paper, it has taken about four hundred hours over two years to complete.  The composition has been developed with no digital software and the final piece was cut by hand using a scalpel.  

 It was selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2015, chosen from over 2500 entrants.
