The work that I currently have on display at Articulate Project Space's (APS) exhibition, 'Colour, line, form', is the 4th drawing from a suite of autocartographical drawings titled, ‘Die Papageien’ (2014-2015). I am currently investigating spectral inflections and atonal possibilities within automatic drawing. 

As this drawing is nearly 6 meters long, it bisects both the ground and first floor spaces of APS. I am very glad to be able to present these drawings in a space that can easily accommodate my ongoing want to explore verticality.  This suite of drawings is now approximately 50% complete. The remaining 50% will be completed by the beginning of March 2015.

Future installations of this suite of drawings: As there is a shortage of suitable exhibition spaces with gloriously high ceilings in Sydney, some of the drawings from this series might end up being orientated horizontally along a wall. 

In a domestic environment, a drawing from this suite could easily be installed parallel and above a wall's picture rail. For braver people, the work might snake up a wall and continue onto and across a ceiling.

Many thanks to the exhibition's curator, William Seeto. The exhibition is now open until the 28th December.
