VIDEO: ACTION DRAWINGS

Dear Tom,
Hi, i am a fine art student at Plymouth University in England, becoming increasingly interested in drawing, sound, and conceptual practice. Having just watched the video - freehand circle, it seems there are at least two traces of the act (the visual trace, and the sound trace). One is obviously much more ephemeral than the other. In terms of Norman Bryson’s idea of drawing as a “permanently open and exposed field of becoming” (in the Stage of Drawing), do you see the sound trace as part of this field? Of course that depends on whether you think your practice can be framed in this way? Does the idea of drawing as a “field of becoming” apply to conceptual practice?

By the way, i’ve not tried German beer from cincinatti, but i have supped in the Rhine Valley (not bad).

Cheers,

Sean Maltby.

[…] Having watch Tom Marioni’s video ‘Action Drawings’ before beginning this exercise I could see the connection with the ‘zen-like concentration on mark making.’ I liked the effect which was created, reminding me of the woods and tree trunks I want to draw.  Also at each end of the stroke where it ran out different effects were created; ribbon-like at the bottom and seaweed-like at the top.
