Eight Lines (grayscale's)

3 Drawings, pencil on Paper, 50x50cm each

Abstract

These drawings are part of an ongoing series which explore the tonal variations of grey within a dark to light scale and are made using eight Faber Castell Polychromos pencils; black, white and six cold greys 1- V1. Through the use of basic ordering systems, in which no stress is placed on one line over and above another and the proposition that no one grey tone is inherently preferable to another, all eight greys are allowed to coexist in equal formations and are presented as they occur in their tonal range and repeated. In this practice, and in these works, in particular, the drawing is reduced to the elementary activity of marking 128 parallel ruled lines, one after another, in even, systematic and numerical sequences, in which the fluctuation and the irregularities of the manually drawn line are evident. Making one mark after another over periods of focused time leads to a particular awareness in which each drawing can only be made at its own pace and cannot be hurried; they have their own rhythm in which I propose a correlation between the drawn line and the drawn breath.
