Fascinated by the notions of structure and arbitrariness, and how they relate tot each other, Carine Weve dedicates herself to creating pencil drawings, submitting them to simple, strict rules that result in strong mathematical images. They are the outcome of a creative process characterized by monotonic performance, repetition and concentration. The feel of handwork and the precision of execution give the drawings a delicate and poetic quality.

Characteristic for the working process is the build-up from the centre, circling clockwise so that the image evenly expands starting from the middle. Essentially, every drawing is a possible centre of an expanding surface that takes on unimaginable dimensions. If Weve were to complete the drawings according to her own set of rules, they would indivertibly grow to literally immeasurable surfaces defined in terms of square lightyears.

The drawings shown at This Art Fair are the result of her investigation into how structure can escape from itself. Not despite, but because of itself.
