This work didn't progress any further than this - it was too direct, too obvious, but I will employ the genre of vanitas and still life of the 16th- 19th centuries through installation and photographic methodologies again.
The above drawings are based on notion of glassed stained windows often found in Catholic Churches in Ireland. These works are a prelude to the finished drawings which are very different. The idea of the exaggerated breast to form an arch refers to the role of the feminine in the form of the Virgin Mary at el of Catholic Church.
These monochromatic drawings were created from wash and shaved charcoaled driftwood from an installation piece in 2000. I keep revising these works as they area reminder of how process becomes research.
