Writing for the Open College of the Arts

I do some tutoring, in drawing and painting, for the OCA and I contribute to their public blog. Sometimes it starts a discussion, and sometimes not.

You can read all my entries here:



After 2

In addition to the series of drawings of installations and videos (find them here), I’m also producing another series that might find their way into my final PhD submission. At the moment I’m not sure. But I wanted to post them. Each is 240mm x 240mm.

365 Drawings

Throughout 2013 I made drawing for every day. Each day a new image appeared on a blog. You can find it here.

All of the images are of parts of galleries and museums that don’t contain any art. Lots of floors, lighting, sockets. That sort of thing. Posted below are a few of the images, but the blog (link above) is the best place to look through them.

Early on in the process I was asked to sell one if the drawings. This presented me with a problem as I wanted to exhibit all of them as a single work. I decided to sell the drawing and then ask the buyer to send me a picture of the drawing when it had been installed in its new home. I redrew that in the same way, meaning that there wouldn’t – in theory – be any gaps when I came to show the work.

At the time of writing about a month’s worth of the primary drawings have been sold and redrawn, and quite a few of the redraws have been sold too. Any unsold works are available for purchase for £50. Have a look in the comments sections of the drawing you’re interested in to see if it’s already sold.
