Contour Line Drawings

Ink on paper, 1998-2000

This series of drawings use the convention of the contour line from map-making to create an imaginary landscape. Drawn by hand these landscapes develop organically continuing from one sheet in the series to the next. The drawings mimic the techniques of the map, our traditional means of navigation and orientation, yet their form is used to negate the very purpose of the medium.

These drawings have been shown at Vane, Newcastle-upon-Tyne as well as in group exhibitions in the UK and Holland. Pieces from this series reside in various private collections internationally.
