Selected Drawings



Drawings from Lake Como Residency. Gurjohns, London 2023.

Studies of a thousand year old olive tree. An experiment in line with Albrecht Dürer’s philosophy of thinking, that by drawing nature precisely you get closer to the truth of the matter. It’s interesting  to see what gets drawn into the image when you focus on detail.

THERE ARE GHOSTS IN THE HOUSE


“There is a universal belief in the phantoms or etherial beings who dwell in the neighbourhood of humans and who exercise an invisible yet powerful influence upon them. These beings are generally supposed to be the spirits and souls of the dead. These spirits, autonomous as they are, when viewed from a psychological angle are unconscious autonomous complexes which appear as projections because they have no direct association with the ego.”

Jung 1919 - The Psychological Foundation for the Belief in Spirits
