A line drawn…

A line, drawn on hot-press paper, rubbed until it fades and fuses with the surface, becomes a shadow of its former self. Lines repeated, gradually darkening, produce marks of tension and great spatial depth. The bleeding of charcoal and graphite trapped and paled by layers added and removed continues to exploit these abstract interpretations of movement, sound, mutability and evanescent light. My work is an enquiry into process, through memory and repetition. It is an investigation into the instability of line, of surface, of life, informed by observation of the world around me.
