Matthew writes: This work surrounds ideas of emotional deterioration and domestic life. ‘One’ and ‘Two’ invite the viewer to engage with an intimate and personal moment. Both books contain copper plate etchings that have been deteriorating in bleach, allowing the image generated to be spontaneous and uncontrollable. The books contain stamped text that has been decaying under the readers touch.
