I regularly return to in the National Gallery, to think. I make my way to this bench opposite Ucello’s, Battle of San Romano, in Room 54. Here I jot geometric drawings in my small notebook.
Lines and grids are made with graphite. Repetition, no rulers. They are soft and light and open. They quiver.
This work is unknown to me, the artist is present and introduces herself to us. She reveals her approach, her movement; her self-portraits. She has listened to what her drawing practice has revealed. she is both artist and tool.
