Axe Drawings

This series of drawings was done using an axe dipped in ink, working intuitively in response the marks, as they develop.

I'm interested in drawing as an embodied practice - the idea of being in conversation with the paper, the axe, the ink and the feeling and experience in that moment of its making.

The forms and ‘language' of landscape come instinctively to me and develop in the balance between the marks and the spaces. 

The drawings are a response and a translation. An expression of the relationship with landscape, through the body. How the unseen and unspoken is felt.
