Brazilian artist Tonico Lemos Auad (b. 1968) makes drawings that verge on sculpture (and vice versa), often employing natural processes to carry out or complete his mark-making strategies.
In the works shown here, fine golden chains are suspended from the ceiling and onto the floor, where the spillage is shaped into outlines of flowers or patterned forms.
Visually reminiscent of Isabelle Cornaro's later work with jewellery and accessories, Lemos Auad's drawings are, by contrast, the result of very different concerns.
Reliant on the force of gravity to create perfectly straight initial lines, his own intervention completes the drawings in an elegant collaborative gesture.
