Draw a Line Somewhere

2012/3. Approx. 3000mm x 3600mm x 10mm (h x w x d). Two-sided soft drawing. Red felt, black quilting, yellow cotton.

Draw a Line Somewhere explores languages of drawing through an engagement with surface, line, gesture and process. Conflating drawing with soft sculpture techniques the work hints at 3D yet exhibits characteristics of drawing such as a flat surface as a ground and line created through cutting and stitching. Whilst gestural the form is a product of meticulous labour, a repetitive and experiential process of encounter through fabrication that represents an interiorisation and an antidote to mediated experience.
