Draw a Line Somewhere


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 three-dimensionality yet exhibits characteristics of drawing, such as a flat surface as a ground and line as a key element (created through processes of 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.
