Did you ever draw on the walls when you were a child? I certainly did (and worse!) and I've never lost my appetite for it.
In order to practice, working out the pose and technical details, for the massive drawing at my upcoming solo show at the Art Gallery of Mississauga (opens July 2 through Sept 13), I've been testing and drawing all over the biggest wall in our house.
What you see here is not a finished drawing and quite different in character than I imagine my gallery drawing will be, but drawing is a way of thinking and I am thinking my way through the problem that this drawing represents.
I have to admit I am really starting to enjoy drawing this large and will be sad when I have to stop... we will need the use of this wall back in order to reclaim a good portion of one bedroom!
This drawing is one of many reasons my post is so behind schedule. I hope you'll have a chance to come out and see the final gallery drawing.
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
