Graphite, squid ink and typewriter correction powder on paper, series of 18 pieces, 21x30 cm each

This series of works on paper was made as a technical study, which was later applied and developed in Sounds Like A Plan (2013-14). The works depict choppy black-and-white designs that are inevitably read as natural rocky landscapes. The ground is painted with black squid ink, whose natural function is to hide the animal while it escapes; white type correction paper strips are laid on the black ground, and then blackened out again with graphite to form the mountain forms. The production process, however, is not based in observing nature, but is a result of Goldstein’s experimentations with these layers of materials, each with their association of subject or ground, marking or erasure.
