Light Blocks (2019)

This work is available to purchase via the Made in Arts London website.

12 unique A4 cyanotype prints on hot-pressed watercolour paper

A collection of solid acrylic blocks is reconfigured into twelve arrangements, each suggesting an architectural or urban form. The cyanotype prints made from the shadows, reflections, and refractions of these configurations follow the axonometric projection drawing convention – a true plan is formed from the contact of the blocks on the paper, and the parallel sun rays trace the oblique side elevations. The shadows’ penumbras increase as they pull away from the picture place, blurring what were once sharp edges. As light travels through the solid, yet transparent material, it reveals imperfections in the acrylic as they become imprinted in the fine detail of the cyanotype.
