Voice, Violin, Video, 2019/20

Digital prints. The original sketches were made during the filmed sequence of April Fredrick’s violin improvisations for my 2019 exhibition Reverie and Rectitude at Theatr Clwyd. A short film of the event can be seen here. The originals were made in a small sketchbook and then scanned to make digital versions. The drawings you see here have been expanded, roughly three times the actual size. As I worked on the digital versions, the interplay between violinist and film maker began to remind me of Duchamp’s ‘Chess player’ drawings of 1912 such a Le Roi et la Reine Traversés par des nus en Vitesse the speed and concentration of the violinist and film maker appearing in barely legible networks of intertwining and overlapping coils.
