London Based Artist Evewright over the last eight years he has been developing his Walking Drawings project, which is a series of live experimental art installation drawings involving the public. Evewright creates large-scale drawings on the sandscapes along the British coastline, which are then brought to life when the public and now Cumbria Heavy Horses, are asked to participate by walking the lines of his design. His most recent installation took place in Cumbria and was captured on high definition film with photography.
"... I wanted to take my studio practice into a public space and onto a larger canvas and so Walking Drawings was born. It also meant I could connect and work more interactively with people. Walking Drawings experiments with a new way of drawing, swapping traditional media such as paint, charcoal and paper with landscapes, digital video pixels and people.”
“The Walking Drawings allowed those who took part to express their individual stories within the work, which in itself was both surprising and moving to see. The drawings are a conduit for bigger happenings which cannot be controlled or repeated but which are inherently beautiful.”
