Slab, 2015

The screen print is made from a rubbing taken from a paving stone. A haptic sense of the world around us; the erosion and marking of the surface of the paving stone the image is made by the histories acted out on its surface.

The cutting of the print along lines that have been cut in to the surface of the stone.
The cuts function as markers allowing the corner of the print to fold down in a similar way to the folding of the corner of a page in a book to mark a moment.
