Lifelines is a collection of 12 artworks that are meant to be exhibited together. The piece was created in 2020 when I was living in London. I used to take the same walking route through Hampstead Heath and on my walk, I used to pass a tree where you could clearly see its detailed insides. I noticed how the colours of the intriguing patterns inside the tree looked slightly different depending on what time of day I had my walk. Each time I took a few photos which I used to create these artworks.

 

After editing the photos by emphasising the colours and lines in each photo that were characteristic for the time of day each picture was taken I printed them out and continued working with the pictures by accenting certain lines with watersoluble metallic pencils. The metallic pencils create a certain type of effect, so the pictures change slightly depending on how light falls onto the artworks. This creates a type of a live element mirroring the experience from my walks; depending on how you look at the artwork the visibility of the lines changes slightly, similarly as when I had my walks, the colours of the lines inside the tree would be slightly different depending on the daylight.
