Graphite Drawings






This is a six month old drawing, but it directly influences my current ideals on the basics of drawing into their simplest forms. A reaction between two materials, yet it is dependant on how you perceive their relationship, and how you merge them to form one object. Using graphite and paper, essentially pencil and paper, the typical material association with drawing. Knowing that when graphite was first sourced it was considered precious, wasting any of the powder was not optional. Using a small amount, concentrated in one area, I retained the residue from the application process using sellotape, which in itself caused the relief of the paper, taking the drawing into space, removing it from the 2D.
