My practice explores the poetics and fractures of space through architectural abstraction and drawing. The drawings work with depth, flatness and line through large-scale perspectives, looking at both autobiographical and historical spaces from different cultural contexts. For the last few years I have been studying copper-plate etching and sand-cast iron sculpture to search for ways in which materiality can provoke different interpretations of architectural abstraction. The talk Notes on Printmaking and Sculpture presents works on paper that were published with the Master Printmakers at the Glasgow Print Studio, which informed cast iron sculpture developed at foundries on the outskirts of New Delhi.
