Stillness moving

A3: Charcoal on paper

Here’s a very recent ‘composite’ drawing, a series of short poses drawn on top of each other, which has unwittingly become a bit of a trademark. I do them to save time and paper but that’s clearly not all. I really enjoy the inability to control the end result and the illusion of various figures appearing to relate with each other in fleeting moments…self seeming to dance with self.

I’m exploring this effect of ‘stillness moving’ in painting as well as drawing. It’s the closest I’ve come to expressing, through art, something of the nondual nature of experience…this oneness appearing to be many.

  1. This is full of movement and life. I am amazed how you made such diverse poses interlock so well “just to save paper”. It’s very good.
    Bizarrely, the thought “guernica” came mind as I opened the drawing. It was an immediate impression, soon challenged.
