This piece started with me drawing myself. Thinking of my theme of the transitions between inside and outside the body by drawing myself and then overlapping different viewpoints. I wanted to use different materials so drew using a glue gun and pencil. I didn’t like what I had done so started covering the drawing with white paint. This covering up is something I often do. My thoughts went to how we use make up to do this. In fact I was really unclear about what I was doing and picked up a book on geometry which had a diagramatic drawing of a spiral and drew it over the top. I then used pages from an old anatomy book to collage the spiral. I wanted to do a more systematically produced piece of work. It is like I am looking for order when there feels like there is none at present. As if I just want things to click into place so I know exactly what I am doing. I need clear direction. My thoughts are too scattered and this bothers me.
