Rachel Whiteread

Rachel Whiteread likens her collecting of objects to drawings. She also makes drawings on paper from the objects. Her method of finding and collecting objects and extending them into new strands of her art practice is similar to the way drawing on paper can be the initial exploration of an ‘idea’.  In this video Rachel Whiteread talks about her collection of objects.
