Descriptive line

Drawing with graphite and acrylic resin on paper, 'Study for Mother of Mirages', by Jeremy Gardiner, 1982.

Production Note

Attribution note: This drawing was made by mixing graphite with acrylic gel medium, with which the artist then drew on Arches watercolour paper. Gardiner burnished the lines to resemble steel wire. The artist describes these as "the physical lattice of the transient vector drawings that had been fading in and out on my tektronix terminal at Middlesex" (see artist's notes in the artist's file 'Jeremy Gardiner', National Art Library, V&A)
