Jeffery Austin – Stutter

Jeffery Austin - Stutter

Jeffery’s work here is a series of linear work done in fine pencil, which is crossed over by thick, wavy charcoal lines. I feel the relationship between this and stuttering, as the fine lines are precisely drawn and are portrayed as planned out (being a metaphor for speaking) and the lines are interrupted by the thick lines that destroy the structure of the line work, the emphasise of the waves have a strong relation to the interruptions that stammering causes and is usually what people would listen to rather than what said person is talking about.
