20. Gallery visit: Hepworth Wakefield.

5 Jan 18. Second visit to the Alina Szapocznikow exhibition – even more impressed this time with the distorted human bodies and parts of bodies. An example:

Seeing the tonal contrast in Henry Moore’s Stonehenge lithographs again reminded me that I didn’t manage to achieve that in my last assignment drawing. An example:

Hoping to find a still life that could be relevant to my research for Part 2, the only one was, “3 Pears, Pan, Plate and Knife” (1955) by William Scott. This painting I’d seen several times before without giving it much attention. From a distance it could be mistaken for a landscape, and could be called, “3 Figures, Rowing Boat and Moon”! Looking at the negative spaces, the pan handle diagonally separates the upper part of the picture, and without that I don’t think the picture would work…………

Because of this picture I’m considering using a similar wide format for my still life.
