In Pursuit of a Line 50

Local Hero - A soluble graphite sequential drawing, completed for related exhibitions during the 2012 London Olympics. Size 75 x 140 CM.

The following two water colour drawings of cyclists were derived from photo finish images acquired at the Manchester Velodrome, where I witnessed both events.
The drawings were completed much later during the Summer of 2009. They both marked a return to the idea of the photo finish image as resource material. The image is transposed little by little on a daily basis, in the same manner as the Chronicles.
Ephemera act to register time along with diary entries added as the drawings progress. Moon phases and The Summer Solstice are also recorded, as are times of working and small personal details.


‘The Trip’ was created at the UCI World Championships in March 2008: Watercolour 45 x 37 cm.


'Collision' was created at a UCI World Track Cup on the 1st November 2008: Watercolour 56 x 56 cm.
 The latter more spectacular scene was the mens sprint between Jason Kenny and Shane Perkins.
