The work includes 'embossed' textured rice paper I printed and was collaged in several areas (mainly bottom and right hand side areas) on the centre panel.


Preview Publication
A preview article was published in the Arts Nexus magazine about Remnants of Presence

Non-digital documentation records of photos and a video do exist of this very successful exhibition but most of these have yet to see their conversion into relevant digital media production forms.  
Here is a 'small' image I have to hand on file, taken on the opening day.  The work in the foreground is titled 'Treasure Trove', an sculptural installation completed by yours truly with a collaboration involvement from all participating RoP artists, with each supplying representative 'personal' object pieces.
