Men at work 4: Niger delta
Men at work 4 continues my interest in men and technology, specifically men and the
petroleum industry. Men at work has a long tradition in art. Photographers continue
in this tradition, whether as journalists or artists. In this show I have taken images
I have changed the rules, so to speak, for this series: I squared off the picture space to tighten the composition and, in a way, to create a slightly theatrical setting; and I have activated the drawing line. All of these rules are created to focus the narrative of the collage and the drawing. To activate the piece of paper (usually in very low resolution) I have done two things: worked in various shades of black and white, and changed the colour intensity, as well as exploited printer accidents.
Drawing sizes: 9’ x 12”
