Over several months I created these eight drawings using ink and pencil.
The drawings were created by placing layer upon layer of pencil and ink upon paper, spending hours cross hatching and shaping lines into curves in a linear manner. In the process, shapes became intertwined, lost and hidden. The lines that make up the drawings are intricate and abundant, in a way obsessive. The collective marks function as a whole to balance the chaotic nature of the individual marks themselves. The edges of the unified form fade into obscurity, resembling the indefinite edge of a feather.
I was drawn to this project/series due to them being open-ended . These drawings have led me be able to develop ideas by simply letting go. Working this way allows me to return to the drawings time and time again without being burdened by preconceived ideas or conclusions.
