Three Drawings after the Sculpture’s or Virgile Ittah




I was feeling the muse this afternoon. Felt the erg to be creative and make a mess.

These drawings are inspired by the sculptures I saw at Saatchi Gallery as part of the Body language series. The artist who created these sculptures id Virgile Ittah who I discussed in the Body Language visit write up.

I wanted to get across the nature of her moulded unfinished figures. Evidence of the artist hand is still present in the surface of the sculptures. I thought I’d have a crack at some mark making with ink, leaving finger tip, palm and knuckle marks. In this way the makers hand is still present as with the sculptures. Then I just had fun with some lose studies of the sculptures in charcoal. It was so nice to work in a lose and free style again. It’s been so long I’d forgotten what it felt like. I think I might be getting a little caught up trying to do a ‘perfect drawing’ that I the work gets tight and lacks feeling.

I’m really happy with these. They have a lot of potential to develop further both in part 4 figure drawing and also for my part 5 choice that I am already mulling over and look forwards too.
