Walking Drawing Making Memory

In Walking Drawing Making Memory: A Ballynahinch Sketchbook we see some of his panoramic drypoint prints in the context of what is usually more private work, often not seen: the original, searching notations and speculative mark-making through which an artist begins to think his experience of being in a landscape out onto the blank page of his sketchbook.

In these images we are offered a glimpse of the exciting alchemy of drawing in action, as the initial chaos of those first, fast, improvised marks and scribbles, made urgently out on location, begin to conjure suggestions of actual things and sometimes recognizable places - tracing onto paper fleeting memories of moving through a unique and wildly beautiful landscape.
