Rubbings and Drawings........

I've begun to exploit how the papercuts and collages I make can be used to make rubbings /frottages that can be drawn into, enriched, darkened and worked into. They are very exciting - born from a range of pressure, of pushing down hard and soft with the graphite stick onto the paper. I never know how they will come out. They are organically developed........and they have areal mystery and depth of feeling that are really quite different to the original colourful collages. This is just a start... think I might be doing lots and exploring this way of working a lot more!
