THE BLACKNESS SERIES

An ongoing series of digital text works documenting personal and social commentary in the format of black font on black, as a reminder about who is visible and who is invisible in this racist world, so is intentionally arduous to read. 

 

Works No. 4, 5 and 7 have been made into limited-edition screenprints. View the editions here. Work No. 13 was published in In Other Words (2020) commissioned by Metal Culture in partnership with the Live Art Development Agency.
