One peace one love one chance to share our world
from the drawing 'Starchild'
See text on the techniques behind this drawing.
Making a drawing in this way is to be absorbed into an endlessly changeable
tapestry. Beginning gently using extremely light grey tones in order to search for shapes and forms that seem to emerge out of the surface through a mist of tones.
When shapes crystallize they can be fine -tuned. In this detail of Starchild, the
forces of light and energy and flowing vortexes are not only used as motifs in
the composition, but to make an illusion of form together with much refined
contours. Contours sometimes have a dual function as while they make
identifiable shapes they contribute to the dynamic flow through space.
There is also a polyphony at work as forms have two or more identities.
A star may form the center of a flower, the pettles of which become clouds.
Planes of tone at the side of the head (above) while evoking the cheek bone,
and the flow of the hair, also reads as a cloud swept by wind.
The Super-Nova burst of light at the centre of the breast pushes the form out
of the surface made identifyable by the adjacent breast rendered as a contour.
As a way of depicting the form of the breast it is generalized. If you view these
rays of light as folds in tight fabric they become nearer to reality.
The details of the face are left for the observer to visualize, the subtle contours
of the profile together with the character of the body as a whole may allow some
to visualize the features precisely and it would be interesting to ask fifty people
to draw them in detail. This is about projection, association and memory.
The face seems to irradiate its own light, and this is enhanced by an interaction
with the surrounding tones.
