Artwork description:

This piece is one of a new and ongoing series of works using Conté Carrés (square) hard crayons on intentionally folded and creased art paper. There is almost a necessity to view these folded works with side-lighting, so the subtle three-dimensional nature of the folded paper reveals itself with tonal changes between the random angular planes in either light or shadow depending on the direction of the light source.

My primary influence with this series is from the old fortifications of Vauban (1633-1707), the French general and engineer who planned the defenses of many strategic towns in France and Germany.

I have created a deliberately confusing interpretation of one of his basic ideas and turned his “impregnable fortress” design features into a confusing set of walls and passages… as in a maze without a safe and sure direction of progress. If Vauban's works were ever to be breached and destroyed they may have looked shattered, like this, from above.

Materials used:

Conté Carrés crayons
