Peter Fraser and the Spiny Creature
Untitled, from the monograph, Peter Fraser, Nazraeli Press, 2006, is, I think, one of the most fascinating of Peter Fraser’s images.
It is one of a series of objects Fraser concentrates upon in the Nazraeli monograph. Of this series he has said that ‘the work was based on the idea that, increasingly, the surface of the earth looks the way it does because the human brain directs the hand to change the shape and nature of materials’.
