Lot Essay

This work is unique and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity provided by the Estate, registered under Fred Sandback Estate Number 7003.

‘My work isn’t environmental. It’s present in pedestrian space, but is not so strong or elaborate that it obscures its context. It doesn’t take over a space, but rather coexists with it… The line is a whole, an identity, for a particular place and time. I assume that this identity can be sensed by others.’
