Form; drawing in space

  
I have been starting to look at how digital drawing may or may not become a tool in my ‘quick-I’ve-got-5-minutes’ toolbox. Having produced a set of sketches in Brushes based upon the idea of subterranean structures, I wanted a way to use these marks in a physical sense.    

 Printing onto acetate allowed me to play with layering the markmaking further, and wanting to make this into a more three-dimensional form, I cut up and stitched together pieces of acetate drawing to make a cube and a simple ‘house’ form.  

  

 As with other drawings for previous projects (collab with Sarah Brown Wills, sketchbook circle with Elinor Brass) where structure has led to making ‘form’ with the drawings, I still feel compelled to explore how these 3D maquettes could become environments in their own right. So my next collaboration with artist Bo Jones will seek to explore just that…..
