frottage. 1997-2023

Anchor 2

burnished surface series 1 | 2 | 3 and the rub i-iv

64 frottage frottage each of 30x30 cm. 


The original frottage series was made in Barcelona in 1997 and titled 'The Rub'. The printing plate was a piece of concrete on the street just outside my studio. As with all subsequent rubbings, I used the materials in four variations.

graphite on paper

graphite on charcoal

charcoal on paper

charcoal on charcoal

In series 2 I introduced oil and began to move the paper out of registration to add a blurred, indistinct surface confusion.
