There’s something about the process of drawing big pieces of work with ballpoint pens which is endlessly fascinating to us; the combination of the intricacy involved and the final, awe-inspiring effect seems completely impossible. How long can that have taken? How did the artist have the patience? HOW?
Robert Lansdale’s impressive drawings are no exception to this mystery. Painstakingly drawn over sheets of paper as big as 40 × 30 inches they resemble long, flowing lengths of fabric, and yet they’re actually created from a series of tiny lines, all joined in an infinite-seeming web of ink. Robert, we salute your patience; these huge pieces are compelling in both their infinite repetition and the fluidity of the finished image.
