For the exhibition Drawology, 2014, I have contributed a new version of the artwork 'Marked Surfaces'.
In this series of works, attention is turned toward the surface qualities of drawings. For 'Drawology', I bought three used computer tablets with damaged screens, using the search term on Ebay 'tablet cracked'. These were used to photograph and display a number of pencil and paper drawings of faces. The cracked screens became part of the drawing, disrupting the image of the pencil marks and the appearance of depth, and bringing the digital constitution of the surface to the fore. In 'Drawology: one year on' there will be two tablets showing/producing a roving, magnified view of the surface of two drawings that are already layered by redrawing, one becoming the ground for another. Touch screen and texture of paper will both appear in the same marked surfaces.
