My latest drawing is starting to take shape. It features several discarded objects in a carpark corner at Constitution Dock in Hobart. The ‘objects’ can also be classified as ‘rubbish’, everyday items that somehow congregate as the result of wind and people’s disregard for the environment. It happens everywhere.
Although this may be an unsavoury topic for some artists, it’s ‘grist for the mill’ for me. It’s amazing the objects and colour variations that can be found on the ground after a (very) close inspection. Not all art has to be pretty. This is a ‘raw’ drawing, telling it like it is, but within that rawness there lies a strong sense of abstraction, something I am really enjoying.
This is a very demanding drawing due to its content.
More updates next week.
