Shroud, 2015, woodcut on ash plank, approx. 250cm x 60cm, printed on kozo paper

Shroud layers a finely carved line drawing of Exeter’s 1950’s Sidwell Street over the vortex like grain of a long ash plank.

“I was intrigued by the idea of creating a testimony to a modernist utopia that arguably never happened in the first place. In the woodcut, this design of Sidwell Street assumed a clarity that is now hidden beneath  neglect and grime. There is an ambiguity to the work that I am struggling to sense when I am out there, so I guess it’s a revaluing of sorts.”
