My Solo exhibition for SALA 2015 at the Hahndorf Academy included live demonstrations of large scale 'spirographic' drawings.

 

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man I sought to discover new serendipities for organic line through the proportions of my body and repetitive applications.

These huge drawings 3 x 3 metres turned out differently every time I approached them.  The variety of pressure applied to the graphite sticks depended on my emotional state at the time as did the repetitive 'geometry'.  This day I was ... full of coffee

Nice attendance at my opening for SALA where I showed the viewers how I produced the drawings.

Just off the main exhibition gallery is a gorgeous room which I set up for visitors to indulge themselves doodling on huge sheets of paper attached to the walls.  There were instructions - Didactic Drawing - great fun
