Walking and Falling
Walking and Falling Des Marche Gallery Aubusson
One woman show at the Des Marche Gallery in 2016 Drawings and Prints
The addition of the threads to the large Quarry drawing ( which were walking lace ties ) gave it a narrative and a physical presence in the gallery. They acted as a retainer for the image and a barrier and were attached with map pins on to the wooden floor of the gallery. This piece was shown with the prints of greenhouses where the same fragile structure shields and interrupts.
The threads though structural were a kind of reference to the number of birds I saw drinking in the gravel pits of the desolate landscape that had informed the drawing and that had filled with water.
Hand coloured Double printed etching on Zerkal Paper. These were made at around the same time from a visit to a disused greenhouse. The shifting of the etching allowed for a displacement of the spaces within. This is a recurring theme in my work – full and empty at the same time they represent a narrative about our consumption of nature .
