Talking to Gwen

   
 
These are recent works which I am developing for my upcoming show at Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown, Wales which have evolved from my residency last year at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. During my residency I discovered Gwen John’s draft letters in the archive of the National Library of Wales. I am making a series of drawings that take the structure of the protective book which holds the letters as inspiration to develop a form based upon the technique of ‘tipping in’. The drawings will be multiples collected into thematic groups. Among my interests are John’s letters to Rodin, her lover in Paris. The first drawing takes a cue from Rodin’s sculpture, ‘The Lovers’.
