MA Fine Art: Drawing 2010

Wimbledon College of Arts


My research began drawing in the British Museum, where I was moved by grave goods, white ground lekythos and votive objects. I began to make my own objects and presences. Wafer thin inscriptions, scratched things, rubbed things became a sort of surrogate or substitute – a material marker of absence. The objects were like utterances or an attempt at a word. Some of these mute things have been bought to life through a series of animations and drawings.
