Abstract from Nude
Abstract Nude takes elements from life drawing compositions, and increasingly, from scientific diagrams of cell structures, and places them in a different context.
Anatomical details, be it an intriguing line demarcating the figure’s periphery, or the patterns of cell division revealed under the microscope’s close scrutiny, are dismantled into abstract forms, which can be boldly translated into the wet slip.
Mark making in wet slip is an intuitive and risky endeavour, which heightens the immediacy inherent in working with this medium.
