My research investigates the relationship between intentionality, chance and contingency in abstract drawing processes. The work explores the capacity of a drawing to capture both the accidental and controlled physical movements and gestures of an artist. Untitled explores the idea of the drawing as a direct trace or remnant of an artist’s physical actions and thought processes. This drawing combines un xed pastel which is smudged and spread across the paper, with intuitive watercolour and gouache gestures that  uctuate between controlled and spontaneous.
