When it comes to hand drawing, where do you draw inspiration from? Is there any source of creativity in particular that comes to mind for your perspectives?
For my thesis project artists were a big inspiration for me. Artists who manipulate the drawing conventions they used to deliberately create a sense of enigma within their paintings were particularly inspiring. Giorgio de Chirico and Edouard Manet both pursue themes of enigma, ambiguity, and discovery within their paintings. While Giorgio Di Chirico achieves this through manipulating perspective, Edouard Manet uses mirrors to create multiple realities within his work. My ambition was to create space in a similar vein. Creating “spatial enigma” will be inevitable because of this specific way of working, the difficulty lies in embedding the enigmatic qualities of the drawings into the architecture the perspectives describe.
