Adhesive tape, enamel, edding, pencil on plywood
155 x 125 cm

Conveying both precision draughtsmanship and the spontaneity of free-form mark making, Amm layers his surfaces with tape, enamel, and photographs, and draws over them with pencil and coloured pen; a process resulting in a tension between his illustrated forms and the physical textures of his materials. Executed on wood, his geometric patterns are given a base of solidity that’s incongruous with their ephemeral perspective.
