The Waiting Queen
The drawing was inspired by the enormous sculptural heads of the ancient world.
The 'all seeing eye' is deceptively benign and there is a hint of humanity in the smile.
Always manipulating abstract dynamics, it became a creatively dangerous process
to break the head down into spacial layers. Some shapes suggest costume while
others begin to depict landscape. The accompanying queen worn as an adornment
of the ear seems to depict the queen as an appendage yet this may well be a deception
as her furtive glance suggests.
The use of colour introduces a contemporary quality however I continue to be suprised
by the bright colours used by the Egyptians, particularly on the painted wood coffins.
So many of the ancient sculptures were painted and would have looked so very
different from the sombre forms seen today.
