graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour/30x20cm
The latest example in the 'roadkill' diptych series, the found object/subject matter processed in one flat planar aspect (if not all) of its ragged glory: it never fails to intrigue into just what form the objects have been reconfigured as a result of the compression they have been subjected to.
In this particular instance, in the manner of typical examples of 'Readymade Cubism', multiple views - of top, side & bottom - are condensed within the same plane, along with an appropriate synecdochal fragment of brand name & logo.
