I’m now exploring all these empty slices of land throughout the city, with massive brick walls full of character. They have both enormous history, which is invisible, and enormous potential – a future, as yet also invisible. These invisibilities can mean the present is being overlooked, but I think there is beauty and ‘relatability’ in this state, looking at the bare bones. It’s also simply an interesting perspective, feeling the smallness of self, standing on or at the edge of the lot, and knowing you are only a tiny moment in the history of this space.
Every day a different approach on 30x40 cm paper. Fine watercolour, bold colours, exaggerated shapes, blocky collage, loose structural lines... So now trying out angles, shapes and colours through different techniques/media, which creates a variety of results. There are multiple aspects to like, so I don’t know what the focus will be yet. Watercolour is great for creating unexpected textures, straight-edged collage is great for building bold compositions, lines allow you to emphasize angularity…
