SMOKE DRAWINGS 2013 - 2014

This series of drawings is ongoing and began in January 2013 at Cill Rialaig, Kerry. I was making drfitwood charcoal, burning my corks and drawing with lit incense sticks and matches, when I found myself drawing with smoke. It is a wonderful, playful and unpredictable medium. Each drawing is fixed [permanent] and made on 300g Fabriano paper. The drawings made in January 2013 were exhibited in March 2013 in Beijing and Shanghai as part of Irish Wave 2013. Working with burnt materials led me to begin writing the novel Bone Black.
