'Written in Stone' & 'Silent Conversations'
A series of drawings researching expanded notions of touch as a process. Capturing and documenting sensory dialogues of time, landscape and memory between myself, paper and a found woodland stone. From intial sketchbook observations within the woodland the work developed, seeking to embed further notions of touch, memory and time across the process of making. Working with fine handmade Japanese paper and graphite powder the sculptural qualities of the drawings gradually evolves over time. The physical memory of the interacton embodied within the paper gradually ebbs away as the paper unfolds. Initial vessel like objects opening into sculptural papers of sensory dialogue.
Wrapping, touching, feeling, holding, sensing, connecting - landscape, time, memory.
