I made these two geometric chalk on board pieces as a commission for Art Loves. They are both 110cm squared and to be hung as a diptych.

I’ve been playing with digital variations on the ‘charged’ shape from the last post, I’m working towards a gallery installation early next month that will be painted directly on to the walls. The installation will involve repetition and variation of the colour of the shape.

These digital renderings are extremely crude, but provide a sound means of testing ideas.

This is another summer drawing, created with a pre determined set of rules. White chalk on black wall continues the mathematical, scientific blackboard aesthetic of recent work. The form is composed of sharp angled triangles repeated to form a curved whole. Evidence of mistakes and revisions contribute to a sense of the organic, the working out of ideas.

Spiral From 2

A recreation of an earlier work using black chalk on a white wall at Framewerk gallery in Belfast. This drawing was the basis of a ten minute sound piece exploring order and chaos which Ben Behzadafshar and I performed in the gallery. He played guitar and I drummed. It was part of the month long BASS sound art season in the gallery in June of this year.

The drawing obeyed the same governing rules as the original but the results are subtly different.

When I was working towards the end of year show at the end of May, I created the drawing below. After some thought, It was painted over and started again. It didn’t feel quite right, it was not in keeping with the other drawings in the show, documented in earlier blog posts. It reaches beyond the black space, it feels too psychedelic, it looks disjointed where it goes over the pipe.

Here are some photographs of the three drawings I created for the end of year exhibition at the Belfast School of Art. I realised I need to include more ones of the room to achieve a sense of scale.

Wall drawing is becoming more focussed and minimal, though I hesitate to use that word. Something is activated when multiple layers of chalk are built up, the form appears more solid and sculptural.
