SOBRE LAS OBRAS
SOBRE LA ARTISTA
The work is about limitation, duplication and repetition;
The palette is monochrome.
The material are restricted to oil, graphite and charcoal on linen and paper.
The marks are a variation on an horizontal line.
The physical process is the constrained, monotonous movement of repetitive mark making in a series of work, made over nineteen years.
The background is a reflection on the labourious work of Scottish coal miners in my family and their repetative movements in darkness.
The theory is 'No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.' Heraclitus of Ephesus
