Drawings – The study of the line in itself

Welcome to the grafisch-studio!
Allow me to introduce myself – Ryn Shaparenko.

Below you can find the results of my „The study of the line in itself“. There are three section, witch I’m trying to discover. The first one is „Field Studies“, the second one is „Mechanoids“ and the last one is „Organoids“. It the very beginning I thought, it would be easy, but…

I began to draw with ink and feather during my studies in the nineties. I soon began to ask myself important questions in reference to some of the drawings which I tried to comprehend. I have still not been able to give a satisfactory answer to these questions. I have named the search for these answers: „The study of the line in itself“. (philosophy is a hobby of mine and so the name is therefore dose to me…)

The Questions:

What dissects the line?

The space.
And then what…?

Is it now two spaces or still one – but split? And when the space consist of more lines, what is there to see: lines or spaces? Are they separated or do they belong together?
Besides that a line can be thick or thin. If it is thick is it then still a line or does it transform into a space? Questions, questions…

Meanwhile I continue to draw…
