Untitled Drawing (2011) (Detail), Ink on Paper

These are a selection of early sketches for a body of work where I use a repetitive line drawing system. The process of drawing is similar to the way in which the print head of an inkjet printer produces images, methodically sweeping from left to right. By applying subtle changes in pressure to the drawing instruments and slightly varying the angle of the successive lines, the resulting drawings gain movement and depth.

Slice, a Pakistani–UK collaboration, curated by Fatima Hussein and Scale

TBC Artists' Collective have today been commissioned to produce work for SLICE, a Pakistani–UK collaborative website and accompanying exhibitions in London and Lahore curated by Fatima Hussein, artists and co-director of Other Asias, and Scale, the collaborative arts project run by artists and theatremakers Simon Daw and Paul Burgess. SLICE aims to encourage dialogue between two diverse cultures by linking communities in both countries via the creation of a new artwork that enters into dialogue with the social and physical fabric of two iconic, complex and historically linked cities. Ten artists from London and ten from Lahore have been commissioned to participate in SLICE.

TBC members Beverley Bennett, Charley Peters, Laura Davidson and Paul Mendez will produce a collaborative work for the project, which will be exhibited in both cities on online. The group members will also participate in two international web conferences.

The exhibition dates are as follows:
July 2011 Exhibition opens and SLICE website launch at Ideas Store, Whitechapel, London
September 2011 Exhibition opens at Rich Mix, London
September 2011 Exhibition opens at Zahoor ul Akhlaq Gallery, Lahore

TBC are very excited by the project and will post more news about their developing work on their Online Project Space, 12-Pages, and here on Carbon Particles, during the duration of their involvement with SLICE.

Project News: Pinpoint Introspective on TBC Online Project Space

Charley Peters Psychoparadoxa I-IV (2011)

My new works, Psychoparadoxa I-IV, are available to see online from today at The latest edition of TBC's publication 12-Pages is entitled Pinpoint Introspective. The works selected by this month's editor, Liz Oniri, represent a search amongst the building blocks of humankind for a means of expression. In a world in which we are forced to process volumes of information far beyond the scope of any computer, by placing the minutiae of our being under a microscope, we are forced to constantly recontextualise anew, always creating new lines of creative investigation.
