holy hiatus 3, 4 & 5: repetition & stillness

Drawing has always paid an important part in my life. My two favourite methods being pencil (currently Staedtler EE) and pen & ink. The work has ranged from near botanical accuracy to abstracting the landscape. I also view drawing in broader terms seeing lines and arrangements in everyday life that I photograph – from natural to synthetic. Throughout my life I have also used movement. In formal training I learnt to remember sequences of movement by orientation in the space and a sense of drawing with feet and hands. When I created a phrase of movement (to be repeated for 6 hours) for Holy Hiatus I was very aware of the floor pattern, especially as one of my practice places was on the estuary in Trefdraeth/Newport.
