on the use and abuse of ornamental outlines

Graphite rubbings made at the Catwalk artist residency in Catskill, NY. Photographs of local gravestones and monuments transformed into cut paper silhouettes. These become plates from which to take a rubbing, the fold and cut calculated to produce a thin(g) double. Paired incompletions and distortions, the odd redundancy or two, and a few outright fakes.

All images graphite on tracing paper, 2007.
