News-Antique.com - Feb 08,2010 - When British artist Rachel Whiteread became the first woman ever to win the Turner Prize in 1993, she was famous for her cast sculptures of parts of rooms, the areas underneath furniture, or the insides of entire houses. Now the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles offers a window into the creative process of this celebrated artist with “Rachel Whiteread Drawings” opening on Saturday, January 31 and remaining on view through April 25. The 155 drawings on show range from fleeting ideas to more labored observations, both of which Whiteread calls part of the “diary of my work.” They’re showing alongside 8 sculptures and a cabinet of curiosities filled with found objects like shoe laces, postcards, and fossils – like her drawings, Whiteread considers these all part of her captured memories.
