Artist's description:

This print was selected to be exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2012.

The idea relates to the paths we make and leave behind during a life. In particular the tracks that we regularly tread over and over again.

I am also a runner.

This is a map of Hyde Park and the paths that running and walking have left over many years and which have eventually formed the fixed paths of the Park.

As I created the map by heavy embossed etching, I wanted to create the stillness of what running can be as well as the busy life of the city around the potential stillness of the rhythms of running in nature.

I was reminded that for some, running is a punishment. As a child I was punished by having to write the same sentence 100 times. It is these lines I wrote (backwards) for this print.

If you would like me to confirm what the lines say, send me a message!

Materials used:

Oil based etching ink on Somerset paper 250gsm

One hundred running lines Hyde Park (2012)
