Drawn Out, 2013 – 2015

Dimensions: 1,000cm x 250cm

Materials: Pen on four rolls of paper

This drawing consists of four 10m x 0.5m rolls of paper, on which Maxwell has repeatedly inscribed the same motif of marks that have found their way into his art since his earliest drawings. The work is compiled of approximately ten million hand drawn marks.

Maxwell chose to use this same method of mark making he started as an infant as they represent the artistic spontaneity of a child, an expression still devoid of any of the artistic influences of his adulthood.

The decision to move into isolation for a year to transfer these marks onto paper is the modus operandi Maxwell used to detach himself from human interaction to fully explore his own nature.

Because of the level of detail, from a distance the four large rolls of paper appear as single lines on the wall, causing the overall piece to take on a fractal pattern as the four rolls resemble the individual set of four lines that fill them.
