Richard Sarson combines simple materials and concepts to create meticulous drawings that amaze. A ballpoint pen is the protagonist of a circle made up of lines draw edge to edge on a 640 x 450 mm piece of newsprint. Thread wraps around an intricate pattern of pins for a three-dimensional, layered circle that is lacelike in effect. A full pack of felt tip markers goes into the creation of a rainbow of lines, angles and points. One false move and it's all for nought.
