The Correlation Between Writing and Single Line Drawing
A single line drawn; a continuous, unbroken line.
The pen invents the existence of the image from the blank space of the page, drawing the white into the pen to reveal the darkness of the solar system beneath. Conversely, the tabula rasa of sight is given vision through the pen, leaking the blackness of the imagination onto the page.
The line takes shape: straight paradoxes, curved obstructions, angular indices, folded waves, circular epiphanies. The brevity of a single line suggests, coaxes, entices or has the complexity of a woven tapestry to illuminate, postulate, seduce.
As it is with words.
Verb. Noun. Adjective. Preposition.
When connected together they expand, like the line, to form phrases and clauses. When arranged in single horizontal lines as sentences they give direction and purpose to the shape of the narrative.
Sentences with the lines of tailored couture bestow a resplendence of awareness.
Sentences with the sparseness of underpants and socks bestow a nakedness of understanding.
What are words but a single continuous line.
