Wendy Smith’s drawings consist of meticulously hand-drawn lines using pen and straightedge. A basic grid, (also hand drawn), which is their starting point, is an indispensable tool in plotting the surface, positioning and locating marks on it, and subdividing the space in between. The physical properties of ink and paper form no part of the picture plane which they are instrumental in creating. The picture plane is an optical transformation of medium into image.
"It seems to me artists are challenged to make the world seeable. To explore is to examine or investigate, especially systematically. I see no contradiction between precision and mystery or between intentionality and not knowing: when one is seriously in the dark there is little choice but to be methodical."
