A Cycle Of Wonder - Fossilisation
Medium: archival pen, textiles, paint
A Cycle of Wonder - Evolution, illustrates the complex geological process of fossilisation.
Commencing with free-hand machine and individual pen drawings, then replicating some of them as cutaway templates, I have filled the resulting shapes with vibrant colour. By layering these techniques, I attain a sense of process over time. Meticulously recording water-born creatures from black and white lines, to fabric that breaks down, then adding contrasts of vibrant colour, I aim to mimic the process of life forms being altered through filtration and compression over aeons in time, into sedimentary rock.
