Current Artwork > Talismans for Sullen Entropy / Furled Objects / 2014 to April 2015

I heard the words ‘sullen entropy’ in a Robyn Hitchcock song many, many years ago and it stuck with me as an elegant way to describe natural forces in the world and also the way I physically make artwork. The ‘Talismans for Sullen Entropy’ series are figures and objects depicted with degraded, overworked surfaces using copious amounts of graphite, oil on canvas or other standard drawing materials, usually on paper. They involve a large amount of stop & start, make/discard, discovery and change. -Images are arranged with recent work first.
