Pipes, Potatoes, Confetti, Squiggles
series of drawings, coloured pencil and ink on paper, 2018-19

Pipes, Potatoes, Confetti, Squiggles is an exploration of landscapes through drawing. The drawings show meticulous detailing and line work, using oblique/isometric perspectives which are often seen in both technical drawings and video games. This technical style of drawing has interested me for many years, perhaps influenced by the drafts I saw my mother create as an interior designer. The resulting works show theoretical representations of space that are both precise and chaotic; planned but with a haphazard quality. The subject matter served as a release from the everyday, loosely drawing from a variety of visual references I encounter, playful or unexpected qualities, and repetition of images from my past works while exploring line, form, mark-making, and composition.
