graphite  on paper

42 x 59.4 cm, 2020

series I next I previous

Informed  by the way the eye roams through space within the images by Early Netherlandish painter Robert Campin, this drawing focusses on journeys between interior and exterior forms, alongside the calm, still pockets of space within my flat.  Those small, seldom noticed, spaces seem to be the ones which gather together to make it 'home'.  A tension between dynamism and inertia felt central to this drawing, and to my wider life, whilst I was  working on this image.
