From the artist:
This drawing explores our inner structures and connections, at a time when we are hyper aware of the vulnerability of our bodies. It is a macrocosm of our inner bodies, looking at the process of transmission and how each part flows into the next. I have worked from diagrams and microscope images, and have I ignored scale and mixed microscopic cells with larger organs - each has their own role to play. There are veins, capillary beds marrow making cells and and other imagined shapes I've created, inspired by the body. I began this drawing a week before lockdown began and have been continuing with it since. Whilst working on it my mind has been trying to process the impact of the pandemic. It is a work in progress but in total it currently measures 350cm X 126cm and is drawn in biro on 36 pages of A3. I think of it as a kind of map fitting the pieces together and carrying one thread on from one page to the next. I am continuing to draw and hope to make the piece as large as possible.
