Rhythmic Line Prize
10″ x 13″
“This line drawing (left)represents an aspect of my personality in it’s process of creation: I took a long time over this one. I considered each aspect with some detail, and the finished result is the last of a few drafts. It is the unrelenting premeditation which I spend on most things. I chose the angle and pose by beginning the portrait at the end of a long and tiring day, to see what came naturally at that moment.
Of the two pieces which I submitted for this Art Dare, this one (right) represents the side of my personality which I always hope will turn up when I arrive somewhere, which is looser, open, and simply enjoys without taking too much care. I intended for the style to reflect this, with a looseness of form which I hoped to create with the fluid sense of smoke, which rides the movements of things around it and spills into explorations of the space which it is in.”
Who am I?

“This piece is the result of experimental work with line, using myself as the subject of two separate portraits which I then overlapped and photographed as one unit. The idea is thematically in keeping with a more extended project I undertook as part of my Foundation in Art and Design and which focused on research into mental health with a particular focus on depression and states of anxiety.”
