My artistic practice primarily focuses on detailed pen illustration and for this major project I am creating a series of black and white sketches that depict the mundane actions that are regularly repeated by human beings. The work is based on the theory of absurdism, particularly through the essays of French philosopher Albert Camus and his belief that one must find joy within the mundane aspects of human life and acknowledge this in order to find meaning. The labour intensive style of detailed fine lines and dots neatly ties into the theme of the mundane as an extensive amount of repeated motion is required to produce the illustrations. This concept is rich in creative influences that specialise in a wide range of artistic practices, however my work is particularly inspired by Francis Alys, Hariton Pushwagner and Courtney Barnett.
