graphite & putty eraser/30x20cm
Being the latest example of drawings processed from found, 'roadkill' aluminium cans, such an ubiquitous feature of the urban landscape, cast aside in such generous quantities as to be unremarkable but for the individual beauties of the compressed forms to which vehicular contact has subjected them: as oft is the case, such resulting 'Readymade Cubism' displays considerable formal interest in the transformed, represented sequence of folds, overlapping planes & multiple views thus afforded. As is habitual, the subject/object is situated within an 'all-over' ground of marks made & removed as appropriate.
