Drawings (Invisible Drawings series, Familiar Mountains series, Appia) | 2015
Grey pen on mylar. 9 drawings of various dimensions.
These works are part of an ongoing series of drawings that are created as tracings or translation of photographic images with the aim of distilling its components and intensifying the ‘opening’ or potential of the image to reveal an otherwise invisible force. 'Familiar Mountains', 'Invisible Drawings' and 'Appia', examine the ways in which the temporal dimension can affects (visual) representations of place as well as the limits of perception itself, as barely visible or as barely coherent constructions or combinations of fragments or moments.
