Technique explained

Most of these drawings are made with pencil and scotch magic tape on paper (25,4 x 25,4 cm). When working on a piece I draw on paper, then put a piece of tape on the graphite line and withdraw the tape from the surface. The line stays on the paper, but a copy is also made on the glueside of the tape, which I stick on the drawing again. Then I draw new lines across it and repeat the proces. In a way it's like sampling. With the copied lines I build up the drawing. But the sampled bits are not an exact copy, because tiny bits of graphite, dust or the cutlines become also visible. These 'accidents' help giving the work it's unique character.
