Lines in a Square | drawing in and drawing out from transient urbanscapes
Lines in a Square is a travelling muse project using lines to express observations, interactions and vibes of city squares around the world.
Squares are meeting points, hangout spaces, travel-through zones, historical landmarks and top tourist destinations, and throughout their existence seem to take on a life of their own. This makes them excellent spaces from which to muse in the tradition of en plein air, yet I will be swapping an easel for my lap and paints and brushes for paint pens.
During a sitting, the square's transient nature is absorbed and expressed with lines, lines forming images and words. Part ethnographic study, part joie de vivre, this project draws in to draw out the movement of life. I am interested in each space's unique energetic tapestry, as well as the common thread that weaves us all together.
The current schedule for project sittings is shown below. Some squares are well known, others lesser, yet they all share the joys of wandering and experiencing other cultures. If you happen to be in one of the scheduled stops at the right time, feel free to seek me out and say hi. Your connection will be part of the experience :) And stay tuned for further dates...
