Drawings in response to improvised sound

Here are a few drawings, most made in response to improvised sound, which is something I have been exploring for a few years now (music provided by Najia Bagi, Dan Bridgwood-Hill and David Birchall). The exception 'MAP 1' was a departure, an attempt to draw in a similar heightened state as the music enables me to do, but in silence. MAP 1 was a feat of endurance taking 6 hours (in one day) to complete with a short break - my 'rule' had been to simply follow the line until I felt I had finished the drawing.

MAP 1 (Silent), charcoal on paper, 262 x 235 cm, 2012 (detail)
