Reflections on Breeze Blocks




Some time back I parked by the window of an industrial building that had been bricked up inside.

The layering of breeze blocks and mortar with the remains of decals on the windows and reflections on the glass created lovely, almost abstract, images. The old windows framed the images into triptychs and focusing in on sections made them even more abstract.



Some parts of my first lino print from these windows  were more successful than others. The three smaller sections along the bottom of the print are the most interesting, as they were in the actual windows too.

I've continued to play around with these images, shapes and layers, having lots of fun and ending up with some mono-prints that I'm quite excited by. 

There's nothing like a bit of neglected building for some inspiration!
