These drawings may look the same and may at first be ‘boring’ in their repetition of small rock-shapes. But that’s what ‘drew’ me to this subject in the first place.
What we think is mundane, is often far from it!
Look carefully and you will see a great deal of variety.
I was inspired by a coal seam that I saw about 10 years ago in the Ipswich Art Gallery.
This work may see a few more additions, but ultimately I’m aiming to produce a much larger drawing that features a pile of slag, some parts of the surrounding landscape and a number of symbols that reflect on the area’s history.
