Strand IV is a threaded work on paper sculpture by the artist Demi Overton, a Fine Art graduate from Newcastle University. Overton creates sculptural works on paper which explore the act of drawing and mark-making in their most fundamental form. Through a labour-intensive and repetitive pinpricking action using a single needle, she pushes and tests the materiality and delicacy of the surface. This technique can be seen in Ledge II - one of three other works by the artist in the auction. 

​Overton's abstract works incorporate geometric shapes and imagery allowing the artist to play with the technique and emphasise the shadows and lines in a more visceral and intuitive way than her aerial landscape artworks, an example of which can be seen in Grand Canyon, USA
