Growth

Line drawings The line drawings are based on the observation that a piece of charcoal or pastel stick will lose it sharpness when the line proceeds.If one ‘lays’ another line above the previous line it will gradually exagerate the characteristics and build a wider volume at the end of the paper. The size and dimensions of the paper and the thickness of the drawing material determine the growth of the line and became the detemining factors in the work. After having ‘exhausted’ the black and white variations I started to include color, first primary colors and later also more other colors. This series ended when I could imagine what would happen before I finished the drawings and I lost interest in doing them.
