Quatre études (2020): black acrylic marker on Khadi paper with some collage and overlay, A4 size.
A new series of collages have been coalescing layer by layer within the studio over recent days. Coloured by a palette of black, greys magenta and red, the images develop through a playful experimentation with geometric shapes. Natural forms, the warming of earth, birdsong in lock-down and the sense of safety from being inside, while outside a viral storm rages – this strange year of 2020 seems to present an inescapable narrative. #covid19artistsathome
Three experiments from yesterday’s zoom drawing club meet up: initially cutting-out freehand objects and the re-positioning of geometric forms. Fluid layouts encouraged subsequent reassessments, with explorations of shape and negative space floating upon a mid-grey paper (Clairefontaine Gris). Finally with a spray of adhesive the position of elements within the paper collages was fixed.
A tiny sketchbook embarked upon a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean bound for New York. It was due to take up a position within the Brooklyn Art Library as part of a diminutive collection in the (Tiny) Sketchbook Project, but although it arrived at its destination before the postal deadline, and tracking indeed confirmed its arrival, the little book was never catalogued, its fate remains unknown. It would never receive its library reference number, or join its peers within a tiny suitcase, visiting exotic locations on the other side of the world. All that remains are some scans (below) from its pages made just before this tiny sketchbook departed for an uncertain future and unforeseen disappearance, never to return again to the studio.
