WHY: This is the launch party of the art project “A Thousand Lines, A Thousand Drawings”, a platform to announce future art projects and ideas, and the launch of my new website. Or an excuse for all of the amazing people I know to get together and discuss art.
This art project that blossomed out of a recent discussion about calligraphy. It started out as a way of exploring the infinite varieties of expression that are possible even with a very strict set of rules. Each drawing will be one continuous line inspired by a random collection of words, a favourite quote, an expression, or a brief description of an idea.
For example; a person could provide me with the quote “Ignis Aurum Probat, Miseria Fortes Homines” or the words “Love, Hospital, Rock”. In each case I would create an exploration in line incorporating these stimulus words and send the drawing to that person.
