Abby Leigh Drawings with Smoke on Paper

"These drawings are made of nothing but smoke on paper. I am fascinated by the fleeting nature
of smoke and I wondered whether I could somehow capture a drift on paper, to freeze it in time. I
wanted to record the movement of the fumes as it touched and sank into the paper. The drawings
also record time itself; the denser the smoke, the longer the time. I used the target and barcode
forms to allow me infinite, endless variations within a structure. I didn’t want to make a romantic
squiggle on a piece of paper“- Abby Leigh
