Alec Shepley 2018 ‘Untitled, Essai’ (embroidered shadow drawing) calico, grey thread, wooden frame) 600mm (h) 300mm (w) 35mm (d)

In this, the first of a new series of drawings or essais, I am using the embroidered stitch as a way of tracing a faint line made from a drawing of an already transient and fleeting subject matter – that of shadows and reflected light playing on the walls of the room in which I sit. Reinforcing the line as it reverberates within the room is akin to the reverberations of sounds. Much the same as the room in which you are standing now. The ephemeral play of light is contrasted with the quiet intent of labour.
