the same but not the same


20th august: insignia
burning on the reverse of an antique photograph

available in the shop

notes: i thought for a while that there might not be any more in me but here it is at long last, a new drawing. i find it hard to title my drawings when often they can revolve around very loosely similar subject matter which is also quite vast and vague in its scope and often refer to a thesaurus to follow trains of thought and the evolution of words. i had named this piece 'ensign' quite early on for it's flaggy quality and my thoughts about it being a secret code, this suggested a reference to 'ancient' which is far too literal a reference to time passing, dot dot dot etc and ended up back with insignia. the same but not quite the same.
