I’ve had a really productive day today, completing two new drawings for possible inclusion in the show. Generally Gill leaves little or no empty space in her work, speckling dots and dashes across otherwise unfinished areas. I often attempt to balance the more intricate areas of mark making with blank voids, encouraging the viewer to fill in the gaps. However, my latest drawings are more akin to Gill’s all-over technique and this is something I want to push further. Think Pollock but on a microscopic scale!
I have also been working on promotional material for the exhibition with curator Rosamond Murdoch. I always find this useful in terms of clarifying the purpose and context of a show, and it has been important to try and map the route for the next five weeks. The full press release will be ready within the next couple of days. Onwards and upwards!
