BLACK GRIDS was developed as a natural off shoot of my main project, RESIDUAL INK DRAWINGS. In this project, I use the configuration of the grid, a long-standing metaphor for stability and order. In these assemblages, I seek qualities of balance and order amid randomness, playing with the grid and its structuring armature to display a kind of controlled anxiety.


To make these prints I apply reclaimed black ink from discarded ink jet cartridges directly onto photo gloss paper using a printmakers brayer. These original hand-made prints or drawings are then reproduced using digital technologies and an inkjet printer. The resulting photographs are then assembled along with their original twins in a grid, considering a system which varies from work to work.
