The Great Escape Part II (Open Houses)

In the series The Great Escape (Open Houses), Part II Colin Waeghe shows a selection of museums and architectural structures he visited between 2008 and 2016. Not only are the white brushstrokes references to knotted sheets - often used in comics and films when trying to escape - the ink itself also seems to escape the drawing.
