STUDIO: INCREMENT DRAWING

'The unmatched sensuality of making a mark.' 
— Olivia Laing

Increment drawing is an ongoing series of experimental abstract pencil drawings that explore 'the unmatched sensuality of making a mark'. Each mark is an explicit expression of a momentary increment of time and also a unit of an intricate abstract image. On an intimate level each increment is a work in itself.

The phrase 'unmatched sensuality' was taken from an article by Olivia Laing on David Hockney, in the Guardian newspaper.
