I have made three new holloways, each named after an ancient roadway in England; the Fosse Way, which crosses from Lincoln to Exeter, the Icknield Way, which runs from the flint mines of Norfolk to Wiltshire, and Watling Street, which stretches between the Kent coast and the Welsh border. It might be that roadways, tracks; the traces left by the passage of humanity are the most enduring evidence of our presence on the land.
Each print is made by printing a terracotta 'size' onto paper which is then gilded with 23ct gold leaf. The holloway drawing is then screen printed onto this in a dark charcoal ink.
