Drawing with Vanishing Point


Pencil on paper / 50 x 65 cm

MM: A certain order has been imposed in a logical way: each point indicating that a decision has taken place in a thought process—the point at which a line begins, bends, or ends, for instance—has been connected to a point with a thin, straight line. Simultaneously, this point can be seen as a vanishing point and as a point of projection, from which the drawing is hurled. The paper becomes a disturbing, mental plane of projection.
