LOOKING BACK AT YOU

 

 

I've been looking back at my old drawings, these drawings  to me represent the start of my abstract journey, at the time I was creating observational drawings of plants and life models and realised I was more interested in the abstraction of the form, and the energy the subject matter represented to me rather than depicting it realistically. 

The immedicay and fragile nature of mark making and drawing has always excited me, it feels very intimate like seeing a handwritten letter. I love how marks can evoke such strong emotions and also can represent those emotions and intimacy in a very authentic way.

I'm excited to start drawing more into my paintings and see how these two elements interact. x

My dear friend Ellie Smith visited my studio with her amazing Bronica camera and captured a few portraits of me in the studio, I love Ellie's dreamy photographs and how she captures light creating beautiful dreamy and intimate photographs.
