Every artist has their own unique working method that habitually causes repetitive marks to be inflicted onto their studio surfaces. Whether dripped, scratched, taped, cut, erased, smeared, hammered: all are repetitive and typically unguarded instances of the process of drawing. The wall, floor or table acts as a raw surface and means to capture these on-going activities that the artist ritualistically performs; the remains of the method left behind is as familiar as it is often taken for granted in an artist’s practice and is rarely publicly exposed. These studio surfaces are an integral part and an extension of the drawing process, which are then discarded, or severed from the work. They hold a fascination of their own: not just as a documentation of the artist’s creative process, but as an insight into the relationship between what is subconscious and conscious in the artist’s drawing practice.
