About the Artwork

Rachel Whiteread is best known for her concrete casts of domestic spaces, architecture, or everyday objects, which examine the so-called negative space present between humankind and the places they inhabit.

"I was totally interested in the physical world and would always be making something, playing around with bits and pieces I'd found, changing them from one thing into another."

Rachel Whiteread

Whiteread works in series, as this portfolio of 12 objects is a perfect example of her work. These etchings suggest ordinary life but also the sensibility of an earlier era.
