After working with the Nomadic Labyrinth project for several months, I have started using the left over small scraps of recycled carpet to create drawings and installations in my new studio. I find carpet to be a great an flexible material that complements perfectly with my charcoal and other line drawings.
It's always surprising to rediscover the value of discarded materials by putting them in a different context. I have always been interested in questioning the boundaries of drawing and incorporating more permanent materials to create lines and traces. I am interested in using recycled material like carpet and rugs not only for their flexibility, durability and easy transportation but to explore space and themes of re-use.
The images below belong to the first of a series of large scale drawing made directly on the wall. Dimensions are 10' x 12' approximately.
