Tadelakt / pigment on panel
 
Tadelakt originates from Morocco and is traditionally used as a wall covering. Joe applies it with a plasterers trowel, burnishing it with a polishing stone to achieve a smooth, solid finish. The transformation of the material – from powder to fluid to ‘stone’ creates a subtle and enigmatic effect – compounded by the tiny fissures and cracks which occur naturally.
