1000 Failed Drawings

Drawing, ink on paper, photography, sculpture

Dealing with the absurd in life is something we all face. For me, I wanted to capture this absurdity in a moment of drawings, whilst integrating science into the art form, drawing on the subconscious, the Freudian and the abstract expressionist movement of automatism. Looking towards these values of the absurd, and what is conveyed when you're not thinking can really open up what it is you convey, broadens the spectrum of creativity.
