Introduction

The twenty-one images that make up this body of work are not editioned prints, but one-of-a-kind pieces. Depictions of various French architectural elements were first rendered in mezzotint, then cut up and sewn together to form two-dimensional structures. The structures were then hand-stitched onto property deeds from Rochefort, France. Materials include mezzotint, thread, glue, charcoal and antique deeds dating to 1836.
