GROUND

A series of landscapes using graphite and paper

These drawings use walking as a site of encounter. In an attempt to imbue a sense of place into the work, a rubbing is taken from the site. The paper is worked and physically marked by the local geology, or architecture; anything which grounds the image to its environment. It is embossed with impressions on the verso, and coloured by smudges of mud and moss. So there's a hidden element to the work too, an unseen side. Giving rise to the question of where the work actually lies - in the drawing, or within the making of it.
