Walks through Oaxaca City 5

Walks through Oaxaca City 5

Halima Akhtar


These monotypes are part of a series of 12 original prints, made in response to daily journeys travelled by foot around Oaxaca City, Mexico. They traverse a path through open market squares and turn the corner on hidden pockets of space, with a focus on the changing rhythms of light and shadow that sculpt the city’s pavements.

The prints are made as one-offs by applying ink to a smooth printing plate and  transferring drawn marks through pressure on the back of the paper. Due to the nature of the materials the pieces are best displayed out of direct sunlight.
