“This is our intense desire”
Tonight we attended the private viewing of new carbon works by Richard Devereux.
At first sight the works seemed strange, and within minutes we were in love with them! The majority were large circles which either resembled microbes or atoms under a microscope, and others looked like grey planets balanced in space.
Close up they were mezmerising, with swirling shapes, dots and carbon dust.
The works were created using a process of applying carbon to paper via the use of a flame.
The artist was deep in conversation with people he seemed to know already, and we are not rude enough to interupt, so unfortunatly my artist husband did not get the chance to discuss techniques.
Enjoyed the wine, and the art though, a good night!
