Drawing from the Kitchen is an on-going live project which aims to ask about the nature of personal exchange by making, giving and receiving artworks and the time needed to make them. The drawings below are being given away.
Together they represent a picture of a place over a period of about five years. They can be thought of as a study of home, a record of a period of time, as labour of the maker. They show an actual kitchen, the authors families kitchen, no frills, no re-arranging stuff for the viewer or the artefact. They have been made in between times, between lunch and the school run, between dinner and the bed time routine. What you see are incidental arrangements of objects most common to the functioning of a families life.
If you would like to have a drawing, click on it below and send me a message. No money required, give me something that you think would do.
I also ask that you allow me to visit you and your kitchen and draw for between two and four hours. You will have your chosen original drawing to keep; do what you like with it, revere it or dispose of it! The work that results from my visit will replace your one on this website and become available for another yet-to-be-known person to own. The one you have chosen will be digitally archived below.
