Drawing on Acid- free card. September 2005
Focus Series is a conceptual set of four black and white drawings,
each of the four stages in how we assimilate information.
Focus in Perspective is the way we start to see the patterning and draw
conclusions from that information and draw a perspective on that information.
The second drawing, Focus in Objective is when we identify what we can see,
and draw it out and examine it as an object.
Focus In Subjective is where we throw it back into our brain and synthesise the
information against all other objects of information.
The compartments are where each fact is stored and the diagonal lines represent the neurons
sending and receiving information for comparison
The fourth drawing, Focus Introspective, (sometimes I call this drawing ‘Pumpkin Head!),
is about the processing of all the information,
melding and assimilating it back into the new patterning of inward knowledge, and becoming it.
Thus, the insatiable urge of the thirsting for knowledge.
These works were a study in W.S.U. Bach Fine Arts 2005 in researching plastic shopping bags.
These works are the sculptural result. Above is the 3D sculpture, which has ‘waves’ of ‘cave rock’ where
tiny lights can be inserted into the sculpture for a decorative wall light,
and below is the Relief work- a flattened carved work.
Acid-free paper, treated with ink and paint.
The concept of this wallpaper was to have it look like a ‘cave’ appearance in visual design.
My bedroom is my ‘cave’ to just be in.
I painted this watercolour to rest on my piano so that I could get a sense of peace and calm,
just like the lizard in the drawing, going about his work.
You Kill The Ones That Carry You. 2005. Watercolour on paper.
This is about people who pay for a service, only to be ripped off and treated
badly by the ones that are supposed to look after them.
The Angle Of The Angel. Ink and Watercolour. 2005.
Have you ever been through a rough trot? Life can bring these on,
even though you try to avoid them as much as possible.
To get to understand the situation, we must find a way to be objective
and create the ability to handle the situation,
even if it means that we must end the situation we are in, permanently.
Ink on acid free glossy paper. 2005
What sort of experiences have you had at a large corporate company? Mine was with the Wusss Bluff Company.
Thats was in 2005. Draw about it. Best not to talk about it…. (mmm?!)
Ink on acid-free paper. 2005
In 2005, I had to go and get abdominal exploratory tests.
Frankly, I was a bit upset by the whole process, and the inconvenience of recuperation.
So, I drew this drawing showing the fears one can have in regards into the unknown:
Cocoons being found inside your body, and animals and nursery rhyme characters
all turning into mischievous taunting nightmare things!
It’s enough to make you do a drawing about it!
Various treatments to plaster. These particular sculptures created 2002-2005
Like graveyard headstones, these plaster sculptures stand still in the face of time.
