is mainly photo led and mixes a range of printmaking processes
with photography. Recently I have been using laser cutting both
as an additional technical tool but also as an expression in itself.
The image I've laser cut on the bookmark is from a detail of a
horse trough in a quiet square in the centre of Rome. I'm interested
in the effect of time on place, and the abstractions that erosion
and wear creates. The carvings on the side of the trough created
their own abstraction with little work from me. It also looks
a little like a stack of paper sheets being "flicked"
before use - apposite for a bookmark.
