The drawings explore how form develops in two dimensions, connecting with ideas generated by the three dimensional installations and maquettes.
The current series began as a way to look more closely at a visual phenomena found in the Dendrite installations. The threads of this installation could be perceived in one of two ways: either as solid lines in space, or as the divisional spaces between imagined planes. The drawings worked with that ambiguity.
The drawings use systematic, flowing lines to gradually build form. Development is in response to feedback from emergent form and to the overall form on the page.
Drawings often include the straight lines/spaces from the Dendrite installations, and more recently circular forms. The circular forms developed from the lines/spaces, keeping the same distance at the connecting point. The resulting forms have a planetary appearance and introduce a different sense of scale and visual gravity. The straight and circular lines/spaces add an aspect of spacial geometry to the work, where lines can be notionally extended to suggest larger forms which expand into the space outside the frame.
