Palimpsest

Two of these prints, Palimpsest I and Palimpsest II, have been selected for the 2020 Leicester Print Workshop Small Print International online exhibition. https://www.makeprints.co.uk/


Artists were invited to create work inspired by the first aerogramme, which was introduced into the Iraqi postal service in 1933. My work explores the notion of writing with fountain pen and ink, blotted many times, causing layering of sentences illegible on the blotting paper, a mirrored memory of what was written.
