Journey; From Pen to Print to Paint (NZPPA Award)

Journey NZPPA award
Journey; From Pen to Print to Paint. 2016. Acrylic on unbleached canvas, 615 x 920 mm.

This work started its life as a drawing made by placing a wheeled pen into a box containing paper, the box was then sent to a destination through the mail. The resulting marks record the incidental movements of its travel, a literal translation of the space and time of its journey, documentation of its own creation.

The lines made by this process then undertook a second journey through process and media; a translation through the digital, from photograph to vector, from vector to vinyl cut, finally resting as painting.
