Words for now (2020) - pastel drawings
These drawings were all done during the two lockdowns Melbourne experienced in 2020 due to the Coronavirus. I had been collecting words for a while and eventually felt that these drawings might be suitable for some of them. I choose the words which seemed to fit the time and matched them with the drawings.
There is a description for each word and a link to where I found it - click the image to see this.
All drawings were on A4 paper 210gsm.
All are mixed oil and soft pastel.
Those with * include moulding paste as well.
Inspired by Rothko and others.
Created as respite during a very odd time through repetition and experimentation.
I am also currently selling A4, 20-page zines with a selection of these words and images - see the image within the gallery. Contact me directly for sales. Also check out my Instagram or Facebook as I often post-sales and up to date information there.
