Night Drawings

2008, ink on found pages.

A series of pages torn from selected poetry books, in which the words have been inked over except for where the letter 'o' occurs.
"...the recent Night Drawings involve a twist on manuscript illumination (manuscript obliteration?). Pages torn from books with titles referring to night have been almost completely covered over. With the exception of relevant phrases like “nothing but a dark night,” “down will come the sky,” “into the room the night plunges” -- what remain visible are book page numbers and all the letters “o” gleaming like so many stars in an ink-black sky."

Extract from Two Point(s) North by Claire Dagle
