Helplessness blues

  • Date 2020
  • Size 28cm diameter
  • Materials Gel pen on oil paint

One of a sequence of tondi, this work continues with my investigation/obsession with exploring the drawn line in conjunction with the painted gesture. It attempts to function by allowing the gel pen to go where it wants to yet at the same time, steering its direction with the interception and insertion of personalised imagery generated from the past thirty years. My hope is to come close to making thoughts visible.
