I have three sets of drawings on display with Art Salon at the Greenhouse gallery; a group exhibition in Stoke Newington, London.

These works are taken from my “Draw an object a day for 365 days” series, which is now on day 95. This is a daily diary of drawing everyday objects, that surround me and that I interact with.

The three sets of drawings on display: (i) Crab, (ii) Disposable glove & leaf and (iii) Glass storage jar…

Drawing an object a day for 365 days

Follow me on TwitterI’m drawing an object and posting it to Instagram each day, for 365 days.
The objects I choose will be those that surround me in everyday life and more unusual objects that interest me.

After 365 days all of the objects will be displayed to form a self-portrait in objects.

This show presented an opportunity to develop my work in a tight time window of just two weeks. I focused on working quickly, which helped maintain a fresh feel to the final pieces.

There’s a common custom in Berlin, to leave unwanted items that might be useful to other people, in a cardboard box outside your house. In this way I acquired a child’s tutu dress.

The exhibition ‘A slice of life’ at Franfrantou focused on ideas of mortality. As the drawings float and dance they conjure feelings of life and energy.

The artwork comprises of drawings in oil pastel on two different types of paper, one is glued to cardboard while the other floats freely, with cut-out drawing glued to it.

Leaves and plastic bag drawings.

Oil pastel on paper on cardboard.When I see nature I like, I sometimes put it in a plastic bag and take it home. That’s a typical modern experience of nature.

This composite drawing compromises of studies of various types of leaves found in Berlin and a blue plastic bag, used to collect the leaves.The final piece of work is displayed using pieces of cardboard to hold the drawings out, away from the wall.

The leaves were created from drawings on coloured paper, which were then cutaway to reveal different coloured paper behind.
