Interesting for the viewer – as well as the maker – is a factor of time playing into this, as the physical length of the paper alone doesn’t allow for reading it in the same way we look at a picture. An immediate overview isn’t possible and makes a stringing together of the imagery necessary, a sort of movie on paper, it acquires some semblance of a story (narrative would be the fashionably arty term…).
These long drawings, all on the reverse side of rolls of wall paper, are virtually unsalable and as such wonderfully liberating for the maker without the pressure to perform.
The freedom as it were, of having no one looking over your shoulder.
Clicking on the image will open it on a black background where at the bottom right corner shows “view full size” – in blue when hovering over it. This will open a new window where you can enlarge with Ctrl+ and scroll the full length of these paper strips to appreciate detail.
(SUB-)URBAN PLANNING TOWARDS RE-ASSEMBLY OF SELF – 4.6 METERS
ROUNDABOUT SKETCH FOR SCULPTURE “BOND” – 5.4 METERS
6.7 METER DRAWING
This longest drawing so far is divided into four consecutive sections to allow for acceptable resolution, as displaying the full length would require reducing the file size too much to enjoy small detail. With the slight overlap from one section to the next at least a semblance of flow can be maintained.
