Crinolin Ensemble I - IV
Drawings 2017

Crinolin Ensemble 

This series of drawings has its origin in the motifs of a violin and cello.  I first explored these many years ago after the death of my father who made a violin DIY-style from an antique book after watching the BBC's Young Musician of the Year.  Shortly before he passed away I arranged for a friend to play it for him for the first time in hospital.   The violin motif is one of several images which have haunted my imagination over the years and taken on successive transformations.
