How we work out where we are and where other things are and where we will end up.
This is my card to send to artist David Sandum in Norway for his ‘twitterart’ project to raise money for children’s books at his local library. If you don’t know about it read here but get your skates on or there won’t be time!
Good luck David – a great idea.
This is a pastel drawing approximately A2 in size with montaged images from my own photography and other layered elements. I was experimenting with gestural mark making and discovered a ghost figure appearing over the door. A tutor once related how Leonardo amongst others looked for found images suggested in clouds, flames, even damp patches on plaster. I don’t know if it is true but I like to think it is. Serendipity in the creative process is magical, but only when it is recognised.
A painting / portrait of my father from about 1997
He is a retired lecturer in engineering hence the engine bits and the orthoographic projection.
