Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Pencil on Paper.

Artist’s statement
My practice stems from an interest in an investigation of drawing, the processes involved and the histories associated within it. Interested in the process of drawing, I have created an experimental procedure to introduce controlled chance and unpredictability in my work. In contrast to traditional pencil and paper contact techniques, where the artists’ motions are limited to hand and arm movements. I create drawings independent of my own hand, using my breath to propel the ink to introduce a wide range of lines and shapes into my drawings. A whole life is manifested in a single breath. Each line in my drawings is formed by one single breath, making visible the essence of life force. My breath becomes a medium of recording life as such. The resulting drawings offer shapes and lines that no human hand could achieve. I want to push the medium of drawing to new extremes, questioning the definition of drawing today.
