May Hands

Traces (Hema)

2018

Traces is a series of unique works by May Hands, made in response to a walk in central London. The works all show a photograph of detritus laid out on a sketchbook which contains graphite rubbings and drawings, traces of her walk in London. Hands has then monotype printed over each one, using marks taken from the rubbings and drawings; found plastic packaging encases each piece which contains a collection of debris found on this walk and from Hands’ studio.

About artist

May Hands, (b.1990, Brighton) is an artist based between London and Brighton. She sources materials from her daily environment both manmade and natural to create new objects and sensory experiences. These collected urban and natural debris are interwoven together through various processes. She celebrates and reveals qualities and new identities of the materials she works with, reflecting upon seasonal cycles, sensuality and the inherently curated aspect of our everyday consumption and desires.
