Ingrid Calame

Ingrid Calame: L.A. River at Clearwater Street, 2006–8
Ingrid Calame: L.A. River at Clearwater Street, 2006–8 (detail)
This tracing of the L.A. River was translated directly onto the Fruitmarket Gallery wall using the 'pouncing' technique. The original tracing was traced onto what Calame called 'butchers paper' and holes were pricked through, coloured pounce was pushed through the holes and the paper removed. Working in this way has left a ghost of the original and the scale is considerable.
