Rubber gloves, Jab pad & Football boot

Rubber gloves: paper, Black oil pastel and cardboard on foamcore board.

Jab pad: Left-hand jab pade drawn in black oil pastel on paper and cardboard.

Disassembled Football boot: Drawn with black oil pastel on white paper.

These drawings will form part of the Object expressionism exhibition at 242 gallery.

The football boot and jab pad drawings show the disintegration of those objects, the rubber glove drawings show different views of the gloves.

Boxing glove

Drawing of a boxing glove in black oil pastel.

Left-hand boxing glove in black oil pastel.

I like boxing gloves. Not only are they tools, they are made up of layers of materials, cut-to-size and stitched together to make the final object.

I’m about to start deconstructing a pair of boxing gloves, work that will be in my next exhibition at 242 gallery.

Skull drawings

I keep drawing the human skull; it’s a visually complex object, which allows me to return time and time again. Viewing it from different angles it’s possible to see something you haven’t seen before.Is a skull an object, part of a larger object or something that is just in a state of decay and so not worth thinking of as an object in its own right?
