An exhibition of 100 chronological text and image drawings which began as an experimental response to a temporary injury to the artist’s dominant right hand. What starts off as an exploration of the disconnect between a level of skill (the artist’s ability to draw) and a level of execution (in having to channel that ability through the unexperienced left hand), evolves, over the course of the drawings, into a meditation on motivation, ambition, procrastination and visualising; stopping off on the way to consider the relationship between humans and objects, the value of art, Pascal’s wager, where fruit flies come from and why the outside colour of coloured pencils never matches the colour inside.
The exhibition is accompanied by the launch of Hand Book, a reformatting of all 100 drawings into a softcover book.
