Fragmented Line by Andrea Roberts, Newcastle Arts Centre
Using line drawings of trees, textiles and ordnance survey maps Roberts makes links between the fractal patterns of trees and branches, the paths and contours of maps and the bronchioles and arteries of the human body.
“Trees are a metaphor for the human body.”
Useful imagery for deepening awareness of the respiratory, circulatory and nervous systems in yoga postures. The breath comes into the bronchial tree and spreads out through the bloodstream. We can follow the network of vessels in our mind and locate any part of our body on this fine and delicate map.
