Cut marks  on Paper, 34 x 58 cm, 2008
Image 7 of 9:  series I next I previous

The images in this series are taken from drawings made on a pedestrian route from Marble Arch through Hyde Park, Green Park and St James's Park culminating at a jetty behind Cleopatra's Needle on the Thames. Cutting a green swathe through the city, the parks create dramatic environments where the manmade and natural vie for dominance. The clusters of indiviual drawn marks, and layered transparent forms, suggest that although these component parts have come together to create the reality we recognise, they have the potential of tearing apart and reforming in an entirely different way.
