Cornelia Parker's Bullet Drawing (Crosshairs) is from an ongoing series which uses melted down bullets drawn into wire, so they become a trajectory of themselves. A bullet's worth of lead wire is threaded through paper and framed to appear as a pencil drawing. The resulting geometry references both the cross-hairs of shooting targets, and paper patterns used in quilting and embroidery. The expanded geometric grids also refer obliquely to those used by Minimalist or Op artists, but confounding their abstract appearance is the fact that they are by the very nature of their material, 'loaded'.
A work from this series is in the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
