Ravelled and unravelled, 2011–2021
I started making these drawings in 2011. I said they were "knitted" because like the process of knitting (and other handicraft techniques, like crochet, lace making, etc.) they are made by endlessly repeating a single action over and over again to make something that is potentially infinite in size.
Now in 2021 as continue to explore this theme I have started to think of their technique as being ravelling. The word ravel means to become or make something clear, but it also means to tangle or confuse.
