Residual Trace 2013 – III
This is an iPad generated image that I produced a while back to help me in developing my drawing practice direction. The drawing on my ‘About’ page is made using coloured pencils and crayon (neocolorII) and is part of my very latest work in conventional media that has directly come out of this. The ‘Residual Trace Series’ was a body of work that I first started adding to in the mid nineties. I’m fascinated by what we leave behind us, how we extrapolate ideas of the past from what we see of the past through what little is left to us. My return to the residual trace series in a slightly new way, signals my intended transition back to more abstract works in the future. The drawing below of a Tuscan landscape of fields was a precursor to all of these.
