Discovery is central to drawing as an exploratory act: drawing as finding a way, not representing what is already known. Marks evidence as entropic energy exchange: from a solid cylinder of graphite to an array of visual beams, vectors, and apparatuses laid across a page. Lines themselves are never built, yet necessary for the construction of concepts. Paintings, by contrast, overlays and conceals in a simultaneous revealing and obscuring of form. Here, black paint only ever articulates a black field, pushing back that which was ‘drawn’ forth, continually configuring non-figural space.
