Time and Place - Rituals

The sumi ink drawings and stitching on Japanese Kozo Shoji paper scroll marks the traces of actions of a person – me.  Repetitions of lines were present throughout the scroll in response to Paul Klee’s aphorism of line drawings - “a dot is a line that went for a walk”.  This ongoing vignette of 28 x 189cm was part of a documented journey from my daily ritualistic response to the Finnish landscape during my art residency in Arteles Art Centre: a company of tall birch and pine soldiers standing proud alongside man–made vertical and horizontal design lexicon. Rituals is a two-part series of Time and Place - a collective journey.
