Back to Rubbings

The Con/Text Series embraces the written word literally found in the landscape.  Acquiring words and phrases directly from the raised text of historical markers and other plaques through wax-oil rubbings is rather labor-intensive and at times an absurd activity. The resulting effect is that of documenting the image (typically buildings) or map’s connection to its source (marking the paper on site with words from specific locations on the map).

Seven Highlands rubbings were created in 2021. Originals and giclée prints of Highlands Rubbing #3 (image below) are available.  New York and St. Simons giclée prints are also available.  Please email for inquires.
