Private view: Friday, 24th April @ 6pm.
5th Base Gallery 23 Heneage Street, London, E1 5LJ.
A Solo exhibition, by the artist Paul Doeman.
The show consists of over 1,600 drawings of objects. Each set of object drawings were created on a different day, producing a visual diary.
Drawings are cut-out on cardboard and displayed away from the wall on cardboard to give a three-dimensional effect with visual depth.
1,600 drawings: An object diary
“I use drawing to reveal the world of objects that surrounds us.”
Since 18th August, Paul’s been drawing a different object each day, multiple times, to produce:
- A visual diary of everyday objects, to be displayed in a great cloud.
- Objects drawn with oil pastel on coloured paper, glued to cardboard sheets, then cut-out.
- Multiple drawings of each object, seen from different angles.

About the artist and his work
Paul is a London-born visual artist who’s exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and overseas.
“Drawing dominates my artwork. I’ve created a strong visual style, using traditional oil pastels, which I use to represent objects.
By cutting-out the drawings, often on coloured or patterned papers, I introduce a physical aspect and a visual depth, which I hope is closer to the way people usually experience everyday objects, than more traditional, two-dimensional drawing.
I try to focus on exposing aspects of who we are and our society’s priorities. By drawing strong lines with oil pastels I juxtapose more modern graphical style with the traditional medium of oils.
Most objects are under-appreciated; I’m helping them fight back.
I deal with the value of objects, what they mean to us, their personalities and how they can have power over us, without us realising.”
