As John Ruskin said, “All art is but dirtying the paper delicately”. This work transforms a blank sheet of paper into what resembles a rusty metal sheet. The original drawing is completely obliterated leaving something else where the paper has worn away

About Paul Hazelton

Paul Hazelton’s fascination with dust originated from a deprivation from these often unappreciated forms of matter. Brought up in a pristine home, the British visual artist was only allowed to draw with a pencil in the sterile setting of a covered table, where even the dust of his graphite pencil were swiftly rubbed and cleaned away. These forbidden particles would later preoccupy his practice.

Graphite Geometry

Through the medium of graphite, Hazelton creates complicated structures, like mind maps, with messages and ideas being transmitted along their pathways. The subjects of his drawings, although recognisable, become geometric webs of threadlike lines.
