Gallery Five:  Drawing  :   Mould Drawings (Textural)
Being raised to appreciate the value of all materials I have always tried to squeeze the last bit of usfullness out of the media I have worked with. These drawings, taken from a 'waste mould' used for casting a single replica of a sculpture, integrate several aspects of my art. The first, as alluded to above, is that the waste mould gained and added use; the drawings also conjure up associations of the earth that the ingredients of the waste mould derive from ( gypsum plaster, burlap, water, clay). The mould is also a decision point, a dark looking glass, that describes the figure as accurately as the cast object, but in some sense lends a more philosophical aspect to it. The 'pose' is always temporary and in that sense the 'absence' or 'non-presentness' of the figure is a deeper, more faithful representation of the transitory reality we all occupy - model and artist, sculpture and space. These drawings function as wave marks on the shoreline of material being.
