Sketches: Rupture

Charley Peters, Sketches for Rupture (2011), Ink on Paper

The images above illustrate the continuing development of the Rupture series of drawings, which explore the relationship between intersecting lines through monochrome and colour studies. These drawings display a closer positioning of lines than in previous Rupture sketches, each drawn systematically below the previous line in both horizontal and diagonal directions in a manner similar to an inkjet printer generating an image. The pressure and proximity of the lines is not pre-determined, but rather instinctively or randomnly drawn by hand, which suggests movement and depth in the picture plane.
