Layers of charcoal drawings on pergamenata paper, steel frame
Frame 205 x 55 cm | Drawing 100 x 55 cm
This work is inspired by the impact of exterior light on interior spaces. Testing new drawing and installation methods, while questioning the shifting boundaries between our exterior and interior lives, prompted ideas on the 'exterior' and 'interior' of the drawing.
Initial development of this work to explore drawing on a larger scale was supported by an artist bursary from a-n The Artists Information Company while on a studio residency at AHH Studio Collective, Malton. Comprising layers of charcoal drawings on pergamenata paper, the work was installed to respond to natural light and enable a bodily experience of the drawings.
Exhibited: 'Open Artspace 2023', Old Parcels Office, Scarborough, February to March 2023
