Drawings and Studies

This portfolio is, in the main, a collection of works that explore the relationships between the fluidity and movement of water and the permanency and solidity of rock formations.

The ‘Rock Pool Composition’ studies 1 to 10 explore a point when a solid form can appear to be fragmented and distorted. Where shapes can be formed and reformed in an instant. When the energy created by the action of waves can continuously rearrange shapes, forms and patterns.

These ten works are executed without the use of colour, concentrating on the fragmentation and reformation of shapes and forms as a consequence of their interaction with a powerful force.

Other drawings in this folio, relating to the movement of birds, are a development of this theme where fleeting moments and movements are resolved in terms of line, shape, tone and pattern.
