Kid gloves drawings
Kid gloves. Oil pastel on mixed papers on cardboard.

This work featured in the Bartleby exhibition in Berlin.

The drawings are of a pair of gardening gloves, bought from a Berlin hardware store (Bauhaus). 3 different types of paper were used in it’s creation. One is patterned with Russian dolls (Matryoshka).

The title “Kid gloves” is a reference to the situation in Ukraine and Europe’s approach to Russia and it’s involvement in the conflict there and its annexation of Crimea.

A second pair of gloves were also studied to produce a third piece of work at the exhibition.
