…using the language of architecture..the language of the environment that we have built for ourselves to describe the inner state of the body. ~Anthony Gormley
These abstracted drawings featured in the exhibition The Other Side of War, are based on segments of historical photos of bombed cities.  The stripped bare structures mimic muscle and sinew, rib cage and spine; figures seem to be present among the ruins- yet this is not consciously sought after- the process of expressive drawing causes the the depiction of ruins to be subtly figurative. Buildings are inverted ghosts; empty form and material with their inhabitants barely imagined and invisible.
