For some reason I am using a lot more colour! I am continuing to explore printed mark-making and taking some of those experiments into collage work, bringing together various materials, much of it recuperated from discarded pieces of work, ghost prints and tracings, cut up or torn and re-ordered.
Ugh, the weather is so horrible that I wish I had a big studio in the house. My studio is actually very close and within walkable distance but sometimes inertia gets the better of me. However, I made it there yesterday – admittedly in the car as I had stuff to transport – and did a load of tidying up. A kind of ritualistic activity to kick off the new year, and something I always do when I have been away from the studio for a while.
I even managed to do a small charcoal drawing, about A4 in size.
The plan is to go back and do another drawing later today. I would say my New Year resolution is to be in the studio every day, but that isn’t doable so maybe I will just resolve to get there more often this year.
ps. can’t upload the image but take a look here.
