At the Archway
In this space a creative practice lives. Every line denotes a room stuffed full of objects and ideas. Waiting for its practitioner to release their talents. Our focal point is strange. Appearing to be the corner of the room. When our gaze moves outwards, our attention is drawn anywhere and everywhere. This is what the artist sees prior to choosing a seat.
On the left side we see a full aisle, a one-drawer dresser, potted floor plants and an armless upholstered chair. This side is for rest and reflection.
The right side is for work and practice. We begin with the abundant bookcase of inspiration. Then move outward to a drafting table and an overstuffed table of supplies. Both are pressed against a large window looking outward, accompanied by a second armless upholstered chair.
In the foreground is an ornate area carpet and delicate stool. We imagine the artist perched in these different seats, Restful, creative and undecided.
