Linear Remnants Studies in Line Abstraction -Drawing for Textiles  The Ralire Study 



  • As we took a little evening walk I came across several pieces of manmade string wrapped around a barbed wire fence, discarded, windswept they had found their way into various entanglements along the lines. 
  • Human marking Human ( HmH) a human made strong string and a human made barbed wire fence ... the lines that were created were accidental, arrived in this configuration by chance caught in the wind literally 
  • and there I noticed it again, that resonance, my eye catching lines that are random, appearing out of place yet arriving just as if I meant to notice .. no-one created this arrangement with the intent of forming lines, they simply were a by product of another action .. yet the compositions intrigue me, something internally resonated and I am compelled to take a picture 
  • having framed the initial shot , I tend reduced it to a 2 tone black and white image to further remove distracting from the simplicity of the line formation 
  • As I am exploring active ways of conscious yet random markmaking I included an element of chance by letting a computer program choose the 4 squared frames rather than " finding them myself".  I then use what presents itself to me, to investigate the linear compositions further 
  • there is a certain quality to the representational line in the first abstraction and another different sensibility in the symbolic abstraction underneath 
  • The essence of the line remains the same yet the viewpoints change drastically

  • We passed one of my favourite roadside cracks which never fails to make me smile and look for resonance , it has been here for years 
  • I chose a couple of angles to photograph it from and play with Line Abstraction
  • After the initial squared lines were abstracted it intuitively felt right to connect them again by extending the lines beyond their boundaries letting them find some natural partner as it were 
  • Because there was no obvious comparison to an Image of origin due to the random aspect of the square selection my mind was free to simply let the line dance over to a free one and see what kind of shapes developed when lines connected 
  • There is nothing t represent, nothing to depict just a conscious watching as to what arises 
  • When the shape was still it invited me to fill it with " my 3 Set Stitch Pattern" from Breathstay 1 
  • a feeling of continuation arises, a claiming of my symbology of sorts ..and it sits well with me

  • Finally all 4 sets of rectangles were added underneath each other and filled with my  " 3 Set Stitch Patterns" 
  • the first two rows arranged in such a way that they almost spilled out of the edges, the white shapes being pushed forward as if demanding to be centerfocus ... when I let the lines spill and erased the connecting lines inbetween rivers of white seem the emerge 
  • It has a kind of orientation map sort of feel -- I like the ... a way to orient myself, ground this research , give it linear life :)
