The Finish Line

'The Finish Line' by Jina Wallwork

Pen and ink explore the page. They roam like travelers that do not wish to rest their feet. The pen is gliding across the surface of the paper. These gestural movements create structure and form. The object is not pre-constructed within the imagination. This is an organic process where the complete picture cannot be seen until the final line touches the paper. There is an instinct to how the image should be created. As each line enters the composition it alters the balance. More lines are added to create harmony within the piece. There are no rules; it is simply an act of knowing which is the finish line. To recognize when the piece is complete and in total balance.
