8th february: recur
gouache on salvaged hardback book cover with found markings and scribbles

available in the Restless Things shop


notes: sometimes i find it so hard to get away from these soft, oval shapes. it doesn't matter how hard i try. i decided to start out with a hard geometric shape this morning but it ended up with a mass of curves creeping inside it. some days i think of this as being focused and on others i think i'm weak minded at can't see beyond the one shape that i love to draw.


this also reminds me of a recurring nightmare i used to have as a child where masses of tires used to roll towards me and i could feel them try to magnetically draw me under their weight. scary stuff.

resurrection
for olivia

sense
memory

as if
i'm paper
old
with
powder

how
the dust
all those
days alone

on the shelf
each day
further
from reading

awakened
now
to hands
unbinding

marking

into an
ancient
configuration

returned
to the light
resurrection
and
read
again
