I'm delighted to be exhibiting this day drawing in a fascinating exhibition which explores how drawing is important across a range of creative practices, not just the visual arts. Drawing serves as a touchstone to the more unconscious side of our creativity and consequently is often a key into the heart of creative productivity, and even humanity.

This series of drawings are made by drawing rock shadows created by direct sunlight between sunrise and sunset. They are intense meditations on the nature of being: durational, expansive and exploring the transience of human life.

This exhibition, beautifully curated by Hand & Young, sits scientists next to artists, musicians next to architects. It is only open for a short time, but is well worth visiting.

Private view Thursday 14th November 6-8.30pm
On Thursday 21st, I and a number of fellow exhibitors will be giving practitioners talks: 6-8pm.
