Drawing in its various forms is a constant discipline. I have in the past taken the most mundane items and made a series of studies, always with the objects floating in isolation on the page in order to emphasis the purity of the form. Always the drawings have been 1:1, the same scale as the object. One set were shoes. These were once shown in a gallery in Kirkcudbright and it then occurred to me that they should only ever be seen as a set, exhibited together. The same might be said of the set ‘Gloves’. In Driftwood I have used graphite, conte crayon, and ink (sprayed) on paper. The graphite drawings of massive tree roots are reduced in scale.
