Negatextual Resource Centre


Negatexts are created by the erasure of existing texts. Old religious training manuals, children's books, instructional books of any kind, and in general, books with many nouns (e.g. Wound Healing a surgeon's manual) have all been overpainted with black gesso while at the same time leaving visible a word or a phrase per page so that another text, a sub-text, a negatext magically presents itself    

My Negatexts fall into two categories:

- full books
- excerpts (a selection of framed pages)

all Negatexts are part of my ever expanding Negatextual Resource Centre

When consulting the Negatextual Resource Centre
remember, everything that is, is always, at the same time, something else.
