My work contains spatial anomalies to expose different perceptions, semiotic systems which are used to create a dialogue between the artist, the audience and the painting. The work uses the blank field as a domain, allowing empty spaces to interact in various ways with the spatial objects which themselves become a visible shape of misleading illusory distortion within the patterns. The intention is to demonstrate the interplay between shapes, forms and shadows to achieve a 3- dimensional effect. Performing the activity within the action of practice requires interplay between decision making, choosing which spaces to leave empty and which to fill and the process of drawing. This requires constant questioning as there is no fixed horizon or orientation. The circular orientation creates a tool to facilitate specific perspectives which allow the image autonomy to spread according to the chiaroscuro, resulting in the illusion of impossible objects in unlikely places.

Information about the drawing

Equipment Mixed media on paper, ink, watercolour and pencil.
Technical These illusory designs have a distinct habitual character in their make up or essence, as the fundamental notion of a puzzling pattern is consistent in the attempt to comprehend a type of uniform stability between the figure and ground interrelations. I experiment visually to connect planes and flat surfaces of empty voids which emphasise distortion and to expose illusive detailed shade. The shading in light and dark takes a main aspect of a chiaroscuro impression which is used along with the empty spaces, shapes and forms. The structural motifs are the recurring shapes I draw which have the distinctive appearance of a chain of rhyming forms. There is an undecided element in using the perspective leading me to concentrate on how I can develop and use it as an instrument to invent new patterning. The various pronounced subtleties I produce are used to expose and express different inclinations, both perceptually within the human mind and in relation to the image, as Laura Owens did in her work.

Graeme Cook They are two drawings I connected to make up one work otherwise I would not have taken the photograph, "The intention is to demonstrate the interplay between shapes, forms and shadows to achieve a 3- dimensional effect." Please refer to the context information.
