A series of photographic studies detailing the whitewash found on windows of closed-down high street businesses. These ‘blown up’ images are dramatically transformed to reveal a depth and sense of space reminiscent of abstract painting. The sculptural impact of the work lies in its presentation: the frameless photographs (124x124cm) are face-mounted onto 4mm glass and appear to float from the walls in their own luminosity, making the glass - with its unpolished edges exposed - integral to the work as a whole. It is this physical orientation and fusion of surfaces that creates a tension between the optical and tactile, bringing to mind the façade of both photograph and glass.
