Esther Rolinson on Drawing


Rolinson has a meditative drawing process in which she explores sensations, structures, movements and connections. She starts with hand-made pencil drawings on paper to experiment with forms in light and colour. She often uses simple combinations of lines in repetition to build up complex forms. Her construction rules are a method of disassociating from conscious thoughts and allowing spatial patterns and movements to emerge. Some of these works conclude like solved puzzles, whilst others have the potential to grow infinitely. The drawings are the blueprints for three-dimensional works and are also pieces in their own right.
