Drift #1: Edition of 25 $125.00 Add to Cart
The Drift Series is our third release with Matthew Shlian. A collection of four unique drawings created with a Montblanc ballpoint pen refill attached to a computer-controlled plotter, each piece is nonetheless entirely unique as a result of the varying ink flow on the paper's surface.

Artist's Statement:
I am interested in line and fold, surface and illusion of depth.  This series continues along these lines that I've been exploring for a while.  They are rooted in digital technology with a nod to traditional drawing.  Crafted on a pen plotter outfitted with a Montblanc ball point pen refill, each one is a bit different as the pen slowly dies and picks up dust while rending the pieces.  Some lines print lightly or misprint, which reminds me of unraveling fabric or a missed stitch. The idea of drifting seems to fit with both the undulating surface as well as the process of creating them.
