    About The Work

    Mary Ramsden’s paintings explore the space between virtual images and the object. Using rags and brushes as well as her own hands, she produces marks and textures that allude to the cropping and zooming methods of a digital operator and the swipe action that activates a smart phone. In this edition for the Whitechapel Gallery, Ramsden made a single gesture or ‘swipe’ directly onto the copper etching plate, which was then printed to create a varied edition of 35 sugar lift aquatints.
