After Archimedes

After Archimedes, Re Object
exhibition @ The Tetley Art
Centre, Leeds 5 – 22 March 2015
The simplicity of a wooden wedge sent to me by curator Sophie Loss inspired this 3-D graphite drawing, along with a similar wedge I’d just seen at John Latham’s Flat Time House. It triggered thoughts back to Archimedes’ wedges and forward to the 20th-century geometric abstraction of Lygia Clark’s sculptural Cocoons, both underpinning  the 3-D drawing (30x30 x5cm, Perspex box frame 33x33x6cm)

Blind Lines

Perform-ance Confer-ence @ Dove Street Studios, Norwich
28 November 2014
Blind Lines, two-hour performance drawing, with eyes closed throughout, using the wall as a canvas. The audience was invited to replicate the action and sensation of drawing ‘blind’ on the gallery wall. The event explored the relationship between artist and audience, and questioned the response to live action. Presented by Hannah Turner Wallis.
