Transfers    2017

are a series of byproducts that form during the drying process for Colours from Black. In the production of these works, the dyes become increasingly unstable, and as a result, need to be dried on a flat surface with the emulsion side facing up. Made initially at a shared photo-lab, excess sheets of paper were used to cover the floors from chemical spillage. As prints are removed from their wet storage and rolled out on the floor, a hidden transfer process takes place on the revers of the papers and the floor cover beneath. These one-of-a-kind imprints are often too precious to throwaway, and serve to provide the offcuts of other artists with a second life. In the presentation of this work, images by other artists are subsequently concealed against the wall, only referenced in passing.
