A series of drawings/ prints that are rubbings, created as part of a project exploring archival methods as secondary creations. This selection of rubbings is taken from a series of woodcuts created into reclaimed doors. The resulting works are abstracted patterns that offer glimpses of the original work.
The works comprise woodcuts depicting the coastline of Tasman. As initially created into doors, this series discusses place in relation to portals and thresholds and provides structure to the rubbings. The pencil marks remain as traces from the method allowing the work a certain tactility and ambiguity. The shift toward rubbings over the original woodcuts is the subtle, atmospheric feel they provide, also allowing for greater interaction as they are light and respond to the space. This process explores drawing with a greater physicality and in different forms.
A public programme/workshop will accompany this exhibition.
