人心齐,泰山移 rén xīn qí, tài shān yí -


When people work with one mind, they can even remove Mount Taishan

Chinese Proverb


Through the accumulated bundling of lines and cross-hatching Petrides takes the possibility of an epic lyrical drawing to phenomenal proportions. We have seen how the persistence of the artist can transform a blackboard into a lesson in linearity and how drawing with an expansive energy can generate immense gestural marks. 


Here it is a demonstration of how techniques traditionally used on a small scale can be applied, through industry and dexterity, to make something at once minute in perfection and monumental in impact. (Jennifer Shaw)
