18, May 2013: One of five concrete elements from a work I made as my memorial piece to the Gay men who were murdered at the River Torrens in Adelaide during the 1970-80s. This suite of works was produced: 2003 Materials: concrete, white sand, latex, mdf and aggregate. Dimensions: 20 x 30x  40cm.  Iphone photo: India Zegan


I've uploaded these two images to contemplate the ongoing presence of the bevelled line in my work and my want to sink things into a material substrate. Or as the following testers for the woodcut plates below suggest, the disappearance of the object.
