Excavation Drawings

These excavations drawings are made on heavy paper using carbons, iron oxides, Bideford black and other earth pigments collected in North Devon. Scratched, torn, rubbed and layered the image is pulled through from the black ground. The surface protected or damaged in an archeological interplay between the material and the action.

Returning to previous movement we create an action before we see it, we create a history of an action, a material memory of an action.
