Daily News, 2014

Paper, pencil, marker pen, wood. 

Daily News was a work consisting of a series of A0 sized drawings. Lilac marker pen formed a set of casual, abstract marks and pencil was used to form divisions on the page. Thirty drawings were reproduced by hand in accordance to a set of instructions and a original ‘master’ drawing. They were folded to resemble newspapers, and placed on a wooden bench where readers were free to take them away. The immense labour of production sits beside the overt lightness of marks, and the casualness of their display. The familiar structure of newspapers are re-assessed as an imposition of value upon images. In Daily News, the infiltration of provisional marks where a headline should sit calls attention to the structure of printed material as a hierarchy of information.
