Working Proofs
 

I'm fascinated by the concept of 'all working shown'. Stressing the stages of development,  ignoring  stagnation and decline (or a painstaking documentation thereof).

Let’s follow/trace the process, taking the prints that led to the final version of ‘Fixing a Hole’, which is the frontispiece of my ‘Rock Samples’ book, as an example.

8 prints, some re-worked with crayon, ballpoint and pencil, to be hung variously as regards number and sequence, or not at all and regarded as a book. Involving the re-working of my memories from 1970, my foundation course year; re-processing the beginning of my life as an artist.
