Personal spaces where gains can often be made: intent, resoluteness, purpose, strength of mind and will.
For me, my sketchbook work is not solely about gathering and focussing thoughts and moments but allows for the liberating interpretation and recreation of these moments later in the studio. It is a very personal yet tangible way of connecting with and pushing my practice forward. My sketchbooks could perhaps be seen as a diary and together with the words shown on my Instagram page where the majority of images are posted, it provides an interesting cross platform and dimension to my work. Diaries and sketchbooks are personal spaces where gains can often be made such as intent, resoluteness, purpose, strength of mind and will, although mostly thought to be a private pursuit I find that taking the leap and showing my sketches has opened up my practice allowing a greater transparency to my ideas and freedom to my language without the weighted desire of perfectionism.
