4 cut-out skeleton drawings.

I’ve been drawing more objects including a flexible skeleton and folding bar stool.
I continue to draw objects in an obsessive way, from many angles and as close to life-size as I can using black oil pastels and oil bars.

I try to draw shapes honestly as they really are rather than consciously trying to abstract them – though abstraction is an inevitable part of visual representation. I want to represent some of the functionality of objects, with the idea that an object’s function informs it’s identity and personality.

By mounting these drawings on card and then cutting them out I hope to emphasise their 3D nature.
