OLIVER WHITEHEADDrawings

Rider, 2009
black chalk, pastel and watercolour on rag paper

Drawing on paper for me is just a zone where I am for a while and then move on. In making this series of drawings there is no apparent beginning or end, they exist as evidence of a moment between past and present.

They were envisaged to be fields of activity where I retrace and feel the effects of things seen, touched and remembered. Particularly the drawings are responses to the continuum of observing; found toys, wallpaper and the marks and layers left on walls.
