20th July

DP 201

I've been reading several books on Eva Hesse lately and it certainly shows in this drawing, which is directly inspired by her ink and wash circles. Eva Hesse has been one of my favourite artists for years. I've always loved her sculpture but when I saw her exhibition at Tate Modern in 2003, the thing that surprised me most were her drawings. I had only seen them reproduced in monochrome before and when I saw them in the flesh, I was astounded by the power and tonal range that she got from simple shapes and shades of grey.
