A whole series of my work has been inspired by a drawing of my father’s from 30 years ago. His original was based on visually extracting shapes from a classic Tumbling Blocks schema used in drawing, painting, patchwork and many other formats.
This is his drawing on paper in ink and two thicknesses of line.
I have made a number of drawn versions of my own.
After many other versions in drawing, painting and cutting I have now embarked on a low relief version in painted plywood. The pieces were cut out usung a tiny reciprocating jig-saw that my mother owned from the mid ’80s.
Here are some of the stages I have passed through. Hopefully tomorrow it will be finished.
