Maybe lines don't really exist around us, only as a convention we use in drawing to show edges, information etc. We tried experimenting with as many different sorts of line as possible, using different tools, different media and different scale - each with their own unique quality. The drawings were based on a group of chairs, but in the end the quality of the lines and their relationship to each other was maybe more important than creating an illusion of actual chairs...
We looked at Op Art and dazzle camouflage on WW1 battleships and then tried two ideas: A drawing of everyday objects painted with black and white patterns, so the patterns broke up the form. Secondly, a drawing of black and white patterns painted onto paper and the paper then folded or crumpled - so that the form distorted the pattern.
This group meets weekly during Autumn and Spring terms for informal but structured sessions to explore drawing.
