Pebbles washed up and collected during walks on the shoreline have been drawn and carved into woodblocks to then be randomly reassembled in the printing progress, further layers are added through chine-collé collage. The title alludes to the importance of the object at the same time as alluding to the norse word for assembly or council.
The assemblages play with repetitions of shapes and randomness, fragmentation and reconfiguartion.
