Phill Hopkins – “Burn” prints

In 2011 I made a series of works that I refer to as “Burn” prints.

The series was made by placing a flat house shape, made from melamine, into a fire. Whilst the shape was burning I placed it on to paper. When the shape was removed a print was left; a ghostlike brand. During the burning the melamine surface fractured and the resulting burned shape have an appearance of a map or aged skin.

For Keepsake I am making a new series of prints, using a simple rectangular piece of melamine.
