studio work as part of UNSW Cite  Research residency 2014


Traditionally drawing has provided an open ended investigation for the evolution of ideas and provides a'site'for the history and 'setting'of the indexical mark. The untouched area of the bare ground of the paper opens up potential readings of space and interpretation of practice. The drawings are structured through a set of formal correspondences and propositions drawing from a study of Claude Monet's sketchbooks at the Musee Marmottan in Paris, the Nympheas paintings in the Musee Orangerie, Paris and on site at Monet's garden in Giverny. They explore the relationship within the ambiguous zone between landscape and abstraction. Wendy Stokes 2014
