Frottage Drawings 2006

These drawings were made when I was pregnant with my first child. Knowing that there was life beneath my skin lead me to think about how to visualise surfaces and edges. They are rubbings using graphite of surfaces and edges of furniture and objects in the domestic environment. 

These drawings became part of a solo exhibition entitled 'Domestic Archaeology' in 2007 at De Montfort Hall, Leicester, UK.
