Animal hide, linen thread, wadding (2013)
60 x 55 x 15cm (approx, variable)
This experimental drawing takes the notion of the transformation of an object from three dimensions to two dimensions and then back into three dimensions (animal > hide > object). The drawing is suspended by the same thread which draws the sides together. The work suggests a chrysalis, further alluding to stages of transformation and hinting at the passage of time, another recurring theme in my work.
