Trace

These two pieces were done using receipts left by people in shops, painting and layering marks over the top, covering, reapplying and marking. This was an attempt at showing left traces of people and the documentation of their movement. I took Ideas from watching people movement in the street and the path they take. I like the straight geometric marks and grids on the work however no so keen on the black ink or the paint. Would like to carry on working with receipts and possibly more with the paper used for receipts. It is easy to mark accidentally which I like as it can be surprising to see what appears on it and the texture of it is really interesting.

I do however like the scale of them, approximately A5 size, forcing the viewer to go up close to them to see all the marks. They were completed in the studio.
