Jackie Flanagan Animated Line in Yellow

Animated Line in Yellow I

 

Following the journey of a line as it wraps itself around a canvas, to return once more from where it set off. This series is reminiscent of early rock-art carvings from Ireland's Neolithic and is influenced by the ancient Greek

Tetraktys symbol. This symbol represented the mysterious transformation of spirit to matter, which can also be shown through the drawing process, whereby a line has the ability to become a form. In doing so, the inanimate canvas/rock becomes animistic.
