I feel I’ve little to say this week as I haven’t been making much. I have been keeping my hand in, however, making these and other drawings.
These small drawings, being small and ephemeral, give space for the unconscious to roam without (too much) judgement.
I also had reason to get all (or most) of my small paintings together on one wall. It was interesting seeing these works through someone else’s eyes. The conversions between the pieces, the shared colours, and the relationship with my work exhibited in New Old Forms.
To me, these works feel self-contained and independent, capable of existing in their own right without the support of each other — a development from the previous paintings.
Next steps? An increase in scale is one possible option, a refinement of the palette another. We’ll have to wait and see.
