DESCRIPTION

CHELSEA space is honoured to present recent work by Roger Ackling. For more than forty years Ackling has made his work by projecting sunlight through a magnifying glass to burn lines of tiny dots onto found and discarded materials. The wood onto which he burns his geometric patterns is often driftwood found on coastal walks but he also works on remnants of obsolete objects, unidentifiable or broken - weathered by time and the elements and often including rusted nails, holes, stains or daubs of earlier paintwork, hinting at their previous useful existence. For the exhibition at CHELSEA space Ackling will show a group of works made on discarded wooden boxes and the handles of tools. http://www.chelseaspace.org/archive/ackling-pr.html
