About my animated landscape drawings
I live at the end of a mile-long farm track. I walk and drive along this track several times a week. What interests me is how the shapes and colours of the forms in the landscape change, mutate and move past each other as I move along the track -with parallax motion, forms in the foreground move past faster than those further away, revealing a sense of the space you are moving through, in a way that a still image cannot capture. I also wanted to explore how loose and playful I could make the drawings without losing the sense of the landscape they refer to.
