Rachel Whiteread Drawings
1 Sep 2010 – 16 Jan 2011
Rachel Whiteread is renowned for her evocative large-scale sculptures, but drawing has always remained one of her core activities.
These collages and drawings provide a fascinating and intimate insight into the creative process behind Whiteread's work. While her sculptures are often large-scale and involve a team of fabricators, these paper works provide a more personal, mobile counterpoint. Nevertheless, they also share many of the themes familiar from her public commissions: texture and surface; void and presence; and the subtle observation of human traces in everyday life.
