A series of lithographs inspired by the shapes of scrap materials – in this case the storage corners of radiators which suggested architectural shapes to me. In real life this packaging is a rich cherry red, but these drawings are in black and white.
Using one image on the lithographic stone and gradually erasing it. I am using a detail from a woodblock print by Japanese artist Utamaro (1753-1806), given special meaning because my mother had loved these prints. I began by making a comprehensive tonal image, and then worked on the stone by erasing and scraping it and taking prints at each stage until it was not much more than a trace.
