Alignment Ruthin Craft Centre, 2015


Alignment Ruthin Craft Centre

Throughout the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, artists Lisa Carter and Tara Dean were in residence at Ruthin Craft Centre exploring the notion of landscape within their own art practise. Visitors to the Craft Centre were invited by the artists to respond to the themes of landscape and environment through the relationship of materials and drawing in space, accidents and chance.

Ley Line Graphomania












Ley lines are hypothetical alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths.  A drawing installation was devised based on the method ‘Entopic Graphomania’, a surrealist process in which dots are made at the sites of impurities on a blank sheet of paper and lines drawn between the dots.

Every visitor was invited to draw an ink drop drawing using the installation ‘Random Points’ utilising movement, capillary action and gravity as assistants, ink only being applied to the hanging line.  Each wall mounted drawing represents a visitor, the connecting lines through the dots determining the alignment of particular visitors throughout the residency on a ley line.
