Yellow banana skin drawings – After LaPieza [work in progress]

I am preparing work I will be submitting to the Jerwood drawing prize.
This drawing of banana skins is very similar to a piece of work I made for LaPieza gallery in Madrid.

I would prefer to mount each banana skin on the wall individually, but for practical reasons I will need to mount this work on a white board for transportation to the competition.

Each drawing is on yellow cartridge paper, which has been glued to cardboard cut from old boxes. When mounted each drawing will be raised up from the mounting board on a chunk of thick cardboard.

Yellow skeleton left turn. Drawings: Oil pastel on paper and cardboard with red cardboard arrow.


I’ve moved the drawings away from the wall and out into free space. This is the most 3-dimensional of my drawings so far.

I plan to do a lot more of this; combining ideas I’ve had in the past, like cardboard arrows, with my object drawings.

Here the skeleton is turned to it’s left, the action is illustrated by the red cardboard arrow.
