Drill & Ink series

A self-initiated project series using a drill as a primary drawing tool.  It is important that my work holds a resonance of the hand-made mark. I set myself the challenge to use a drill as my primary drawing tool for a project called Drill & Ink over a period of 2-3 months. I believe that the role of ‘making’ allows one to develop new dialogues through engagement with materials, techniques and ideas. ‘Eighteen Thousand Holes… Approximately’  took over three weeks to drill – I learnt a lot!

A Big Hill belongs to a collaborative project in which thirty artists were invited to create a postcard responding to the subject of travel. Bergen-based artist Imi Maufe produced a collectors’ box set that formed part of her solo show ‘Translating Travels’ at Edinburgh Printmakers.
