EWAN GIBBS-WONDERFUL IMAGERY USING HATCH MARKS!

Filed under: ewan gibbs — Tags: — admin @ 8:26 am

Since the early 1990s, Gibbs (born 1973) has used a unique pictorial language based on knitting and crochet patterns to transform photographs into drawings.

 

First he makes a black-and-white copy of a photograph, and then he overlays a grid on the copy. Working from unit to unit (bottom to top, left to right),

he transfers the imagery to another gridded sheet of paper by making marks approximating the tonal values. 

 

 

 

 

 

Gibbs’ work is based on photographs that he selects for their engagement of specific qualities inherent to the medium, including the way that photographs

can capture an instant imperceptible to the naked eye.
