Here is my favourite drawing of 2009. Where’s the rest you are no doubt asking! Well, I can’t show you at this point in time because it is my entry for this year’s Glover Art Prize. It will posted at a later date.
This is my favourite drawing because I believe it’s the best cp work I have ever done. It is full of mark making, abstraction and nostalgia. It has certainly been the most difficult drawing task that I have ever undertaken, but one that was very enjoyable at all stages. I didn’t rush this work, instead I chose to work on it in bursts, often leaving it for a week or two before continuing with its creation.
At 107 x 80 cm (unframed) it is quite a large cp work. It has a strong visual presence and three-dimensional qualities.
I’m glad it’s finished, but I am already planning another work of similar size.
