An area of unknown. The concept of grey stemmed from my interest in receiving mails from a very young age, the fact that you immediately cast an opinion on its contents by looking at the details of the sender, yet the possibility of being entirely surprised upon opening it, much like a child tearing open the wrapper of his birthday gift. I’ve created a series of panels moving from ascending shades of black to white, using hand-stamped letter ‘R’s to represent a visual narrative of the continuous layered tearing open of the parcel, to reveal the ‘final’ article of the mail.
