the white makes the other colours

These drawings are about space and architecture. Drawing around flattened out boxes that once contained toothpaste, chocolate, and tea, I create simple shapes on paper and then use colour to define the spaces that emerge. The resulting drawings recall footprints of buildings, both real and imaginary.
