The Capella Head Point series presents parallels between drawing and climbing as creative acts that can reflect the way in which we experience life through merging careful planning with random occurrence. The climbers’ journey is given visual form across the rock face, and it becomes apparent that it is not a rational or straightforward progression but instead meanders dramatically and illogically towards its destination, creating a form with numerous associations.
