This collection of books celebrate the colour red. They draw on environments which are almost surreal in the colour. In particular the iron pools of Iceland, canyons of Arizona and the ocre quarries of Provence. Different reds are juxtaposed and overlaid – using crayon, acrylic, digital colour, thread.
The sensuality of red is exploited both through the visual intensity of the hue and through the tactile surface of the page. The ‘virtual’ marks and textures drawn on computer interact with hand drawn marks and patterns.
