Forceps series


Suzanne Holtom, 2008, 5 x Pencil on Tracing Paper, 33 x 24 cm


Created through the technique of using video footage to trace stills from the screen onto tracing paper. Suzanne Holtom’s delicate drawing series illustrates the progressively interventionist forceps delivery of a woman and her baby and the growing audience of medical staff in the room.
