ccPencil Sketches
 is part of an ongoing exploration of information, perception and pattern. Working within the self-imposed constraint of mundane office supplies, the work 
subvert the utilitarian function of the humble, yet iconic, pencil while celebrating its intrinsic qualities through repetition, pattern and randomness.

Developed in response to Black Diamond Dust, a multi-artist exhibit at the Nanaimo Art Gallery, the work refers to Nanaimo’s coal-mining history in the use of graphite, a form of carbon, the hexagonal shape reminiscent of coal molecules, and the ghostly apparitions in the burnished, black compositions.20141105_133856
