AUTOMATIC GRAIN

2017. Graphite on paper. 42 x 59.5 cm

This drawing explores how spaces materialise from the automatic drawing process. A large graphite stick was rubbed across the surface, and from the ‘grain’ that was produced by the meeting of graphite and paper, I began to construct the drawing. Working purely on instinct, I revealed the structures hidden within the marks.
