A Note on Yellow Lines by James Davies
Yellow Lines is a record and a product of me drawing yellow lines on pieces of paper and then putting them into a box. I’ve been doing this practice since 2006, on A4 paper. I fill up the box and then seal it. It’s a mantra. They contain magic. To draw the lines I use my hands. Yet the drawings are made in many ways, some of which are listed in my poem in the link below.
For this 8OX project I used a much smaller piece of paper and a yellow fine liner pen. I discovered during the process that I wanted to use a limited set of pieces of paper. 14, the sonnet number, seemed apt: 14 boxes each with 14 drawings, a sort of sonnet crown.
