THE BLACKNESS SERIES PRINTS

Works No. 4, 5 and 7 are the first iteration of screenprints from The Blackness Series - an ongoing series of digital text works from 2016, documenting personal lived experience alongside broader critical social commentary. The black font on black is intentionally arduous to read, serving as a reminder about who is visible and who is invisible, becoming fully legible when light reflects on the work. 

 

Works No. 4, 5 and 7 also form part of Art X-UK, a new permanent collection of artworks acquired by the Government Art Collection.
