The Drawing Room Biennial |Tannery Arts | 21st May - 5th July 2021

An exhibition and on-line fundraiser of 300 drawings on paper in which I am showing a drawing associated with a VR work I made with Keith Sargent called Careless. I am also talking on 15th June at 6pm -7pm with Alvaro Barrington Jade Montserrat and Herdeep Pandhal about this drawing and drawing in general

My work Care(less), made with Keith Sargent, is concerned with death but specifically in relation to ageism and an easy acceptance that the elderly have served their term. This carelessness is never more evident than in the current pandemic where ageism is astoundingly untempered, endemic and never addressed as prejudice. The 'old' are often considered in our society to be unproductive and of no use.
Care(less) is a VR work that takes you into an ageing body. Its distribution as a work however has been difficult because of the need for a VR headset and the current issue of contagion through objects. This VR work is potentially our most affective/popular work to date in relation to the audience response at the three venues it has been exhibited in.
The worms drawings were made for an extended postal project  alongside Care(less) in which I sent out sunflower seeds to 100 people (mostly on Facebook). My father used to give me sunflowers, so after his death I planted over a hundred giant sunflowers in our small garden. I found the regeneration of nature helped with the with grief - with its entropy and beauty in decay and regrowth.
I often make drawings such as the worms as fragments that are used in differing ways in other works. I used the worms on my seed envelopes for the postal project. I used the Biennial auction drawing as an image on a DVD about robins (a postal project).
I consider the act drawing to be related to consciousness of an object, (either present in memory or physically in-front of you), a presence which is intensely felt as one looks again and again to try to see the thing in question with clarity.  I think of drawing ontologically (about being). I am slow to draw - this drawing took about 6 hours (a long meditation).
When I was making Care(less) my father was trapped in the debacle of the UK care system and died before I could get a hoist for him to sit up. I dedicate this work to him.

For the talk I am showing two more drawings - my father in teh chapel of rest and a drawing thta was part of a drawing exchange ( A letter to N).
