LV Sketchbook Page 027

bartaloslvsbpg027-500x329

In this sketch a silhouetted figure lurks by the letterpress in the Nimrod hut’s cluttered interior. I’m playing shape off line to create illusions of space and fragmenting elements to suggest dimensionality. With these stylistic motifs I also intend to draw analogies between Cubism and the heroic age of polar exploration, both of which developed simultaneously, created sensations in their day, and used found material to facilitate their exploits.
