Made during my residency in Shining Cliff Woods, Derbyshire, these drawings, at their heart, explore David Bomberg’s “Spirit in the Mass” concept. Whereby one attempts not at superficial representation rather an expression of the inherent and changing energy, or living spirit, of nature and how one feels in relation to experiencing it.
“Spirit in the Mass” acts as a central theme for the residency. Including the production of charcoal, ash, paper, scent and objects which utilise wood etc sourced from within Shining Cliff.
Charcoal on Somerset Paper.
