Thinking of the coal drawings as distant topgraphies I experiemented with scale, working from the drawings in my notebook of the coal to make larger drawing ( 100x100cm) drawing on transparent drafting film ( mylar) in silver ink. Enlarged, viewing the works takes on an embodied quality. The reflectiveness of the silver ink means that the image shifts and changes depending on the viewers position. In fact the entirely cannot be grasped at once. This is hard to captur ein a photograph!
-It reminds me of Yves Bonnefoy, "arriere pays", and elsewhere or beyond, the paths not taken and explored in that the drawing offers something that is out of reach.
