An ongoing, growing drawing installation
RAIN | 2018-Present
carbon & rain on watercolour paper, dimensions variable
'Rain' captures the erratic language of one of the planet's most valuable and destructive elements through the artists’ use of a graphite solution on paper. Created during a storm to capture the impact of rainfall, the resulting work embodies the various states of a storm—denoting its clouds, the individual drops, it’s pooling and tracing of topography as it runs over the land.
In using graphite, (a crystallised form of carbon) to record the impact of raindrops during a storm, the work also invites a dialogue around water and carbon, the cultural importance of water and the precariousness of changing climates and its broader environmental and societal effects.
RAIN is a growing drawing-installation and is part of an ongoing series of experimental drawings made with water and carbon.
