Leafs
 

volume one

Authored by Rosaire Appel

LEAF(s) is a sketchbook of graphite rubbings of leaves, made not for the sake of cataloging perfect specimens, nor for identification purposes - I made these for the pleasure of the gesture of rubbing graphite on paper and seeing the leaf forms emerge. The process, though fairly mechanical, requires a loose, sustained form of concentration not unlike meditation.
This process, as well as many other types of ritualistic mark-making that use repeatable forms, rhythmic gestures and so forth, requires little skill and yet satisfies the common desire to put pencil to paper and make something happen.
