|From the Scribble Drawings|
Saturday, January 15, 2011
As you can see I am still filling images away. These are ones I found yesterday and seem to follow the idea of Gathering Lines, the last post. A few years ago I did a series of drawings which I called the scribble drawings. At first all I wanted was to make marks [hugely pleasurable in itself] on the paper [in this case vellum] that would make visible the essence of the stroke of the pencil or the crayon or the charcoal. I wanted or rather hoped that the energy of my hand and pencil; the way my body moved in the gestures, and repetition of the stroke of the pencil on the surface; all that would be visible, and that in the very "act" of making marks something, or some new understanding would emerge.
