BONE

BLACK

From 2013 to 2015 I was artist-in-residence at the Húsavík Research Centre on Cetaceans in North Iceland, working closely with cetologist Dr Marianne H. Rasmussen and the Húsavík Whale Museum.

Bone Black consists of fragments of charred whale bone and a series of work on paper made by frottage using whale bone black pigment.

 

 

The fragments of whale bones were all found and collected on the shores of North Iceland from marine mammals that had died by natural causes.
