Behind the Sofa and Under the Bed
As a child I was a keen drawer, interested in how I could make representations of the world around me on paper. Last year I found some old school books containing drawings I made between the ages of 7 and 11 years old. I was interested in the detail with which I had represented the carpets, sofas and fabrics in my parent's house, the way I'd dealt with perspective and negotiated the felt tip pens and wax crayons, which I still remember feeling were inadequate drawing materials. I started to wonder what I could learn from re-engaging with those drawings.
On the 29th January from 12-6pm I am taking part in a HOUSERULES event at Rabih Hage's furniture warehouse in Park Royal. I will be showing some of the drawings I have made in response to the drawings I made as a child and will be interested to see how they are read in this unusual but in many ways very apt space.
