“Zipped Up”, is a mixed media drawing created in Hawarden Woods ,Flintshire,in March 2014.A sliver of torn bark provided the inspiration to superimpose a drawing of a zip,reinforcing the visual illusion of a zipped up tree.I applied charcoal rubbed in between the teeth to give a sense that the tree had a hollow dark interior.I am attracted to the idea of highlighting features in trees and rocks that are suggestive of everyday things and objects.I enjoyed drawing out the zip,grafting a man made feature onto the tree which implies a playfull quality to the artwork.
