‘Three Folds Three’ is a monochrome drawing by Rachel Duckhouse that shares the use of line and geometry with her other work. In this case, this work on paper similarly has the artist’s trademark contrast and lines of the geometric patterning. Therefore she uses a delicate and subtle use of the mark of pencil and line to create the folds within the structure of the piece. Importantly, Rachel’s work references artists associated with geometric abstraction, such as Bridget Riley, and the constructivist Naum Gabo. In conclusion, this monochrome drawing has strong links to these artists, continuing their heritage.

Other drawings from this series are in the collection of The British Museum, London.
