Peter Ainsworth

Publishing Info:
'Newspaper Club' publication
38cm x 30cm
16 pages, digitally printed in colour on newsprint
London, UK 2012

Description: Close-up photographs of concrete textures and pages of the rubbings from them.
No title or author's marks full page images with white border.
Peter Ainsworth is an artist and lecturer based in London, UK.  His recent work concentrates on the relationship between inorganic and organic structures as a way to explore how we see objects and indeed to inquire into a world where the human is not central to relations between things. He examines these concerns with reference to architectural forms and in particular to spaces that are often overlooked, areas that are on the peripheries of urban environments but without which the city would not fit together.
