Redbubble posters are a lot like space travel.
In that they're completely brilliant, however unlike space travel they're quite sensibly priced.
They are a handy way to make very dull walls, ceilings and spaceships look infinitely better.
Tack them to your bedroom door, or frame one above the mantlepiece.
They're adaptable, efficient and bold and really it's amazing you've managed to go so long without picking one up.
They are printed on 185gsm semi gloss poster paper and custom cut to three
maximum sizes – A2, A1 & A0. This includes a 5mm white border
to assist in framing.
drawing/painting on paper
mixed mediaconté crayon, charcoal, eraser, ink, ?

I just love this series Doreen. Such wonderful mark making, use of white space and composition. I think this is my favorite so far, gets to the heart of the matter.
Thank You Jai for this lovely comment!

I would be interested in your thinking when making these. Concepts, theories etc.
i recall at the time i made these…i was ‘fighting’ to elevate drawing to an ‘equal status’ with painting… i had worked on a series of large un-stretched canvases in black and (white), (so to speak, cause the canvas was raw);….it was a time, heavy.. with theory and concepts… my intuition told me that intuition was my guide (lol)…
to me, now….they speak to the constraints i felt, back then, and a deep desire to break free of the ‘box’… travel and maps, traveling the inner landscape of my soul was what was going on… i can see clearly, now, that i had followed my heart, in spite of the outside critics… who were, themselves, constrained, by the concepts of the time period…
marks in space…space in marks…the space betweenthe between spaceetc…
Very interesting that you say that you wanted drawing to be seen as equal to painting. I think we are at that point now. Although there are still some old painting snobs around. I have thought the same way, though I have often pushed myself to try and paint because I thought that is what I should be doing. I am not a painter and I have to continuously remind myself. I am amazed that these were not well received, I think they could be now, there seems to be a resurgence of geometric abstraction, and drawing.
I remember very clearly, when I was in art school, one instructor…‘gave me permission’, so to speak, to pursue sculpture within the context of the painting ‘department’…. basically his feeling was: everything is painting
I sense that what he meant by this, is basically…. ‘anything goes’ !!
At that time, I was compelled to add collage, objects, 3d elements…coming ‘off the canvas’… fascinating, really…that we are ‘called’ to go with our gut feeling with every step we take…
I commented on one of Jai’s recent pieces that it made me want to start all over again. I say the same about these pieces too. And I agree that drawing is equal to painting, painting snobs be damned!
LOL!… Yes! We can “start all over again” in each moment!! Cool!!… It’s like nothing has been written in stone; I’ve ‘gone back’ and breathed new life in to old work, simply by recognizing that I loved the making of it!!
your drawings are beautiful!!!
Thank You so much Shylie!!!… I am happy to be able to show them to You!!

Thanks a lot Zefira…I’ve always been a ‘marks’ woman…( :
