|You can see two pieces of my work at the Ground Floor Left gallery in Hackney, East London: Yellow Skeleton on a stand and AK47 drawings.
They’re part of a group show with several recent graduates and a few other artists called Figuratively speaking.
The exhibition runs 14th – 18th March 12-6pm.
Official opening: Thursday 1st March from from 7-9pm.
Works will change over the lifetime of the exhibition and will begin with the following pieces of work:
Some objects are idolised, others are used every day and not fully appreciated. Objects we buy, surround ourselves with and throw away have a personality of their own. Much like people, objects are altered by their surroundings, purposes and shapes.
All the drawings are created with oil pastel on either white of coloured paper. Drawings are glued onto thrownaway cardboard and then cut-out to give the relief or 3D effect.
|These are multiple drawings of an AK47 assault rifle, drawn using oil pastel on paper on cardboard.
The rifle was a tough object to warm to, likely due to it’s purpose, so I often felt separate from it while I was drawing.
