drawing cycle

Charcoal and conte on paper, bicycle, drawing apparatus.
series of 17 drawings.
shown at Lolapalooza Gallery, Oxford, England.
July 2008

These drawings were produced during my 15 mile daily commute in rural Oxfordshire, by a form of automatic drawing. The drawing instrument responded to changes of direction and variation inĀ  road surface, resulting in the marks that make up each drawing. The only decision I made was when a particular drawing was finished, with the distance taken to complete it becoming its title.
