Place Of Origin

Equal lengths of graphite, the principal material of drawing, here form the drawing itself. Paradoxically, the work seems to cross the boundary into a different art form, that of low-relief sculpture. Karen Bateson and Hamish Young studied together at Cheltenham and have worked in collaboration since 2003.
