– Sleepless, 2014 –
If you are interested in self-portraits, I recommend you visit Strata of the Self. It’s beautiful.
Hi Richard, I like the way the paper curves around like it’s been sculpted, as well as the scrawls over the top. This conflicts with its disposable nature. It’s a great concept.
Hi Cheryl, thanks very much – the main image is packing material – didn’t “see” it until we threw it away. In the recycling bin it looked a lot more interesting.
I dig, I dig!!! 😉
☺Thanks very much, Marina!
Beautiful, Love this!
Thanks very much!
perfect image of the physical juxtaposition between the sleeping body and the wired mind ( too often from just logging off the computer screen! ) Well…I can relate
Thanks very much (yes, that crackle and fizz i try to avoid now)!
A sleeping person. Love it. The irony is I can’t seem to sleep tonight…
Thanks very much, Alison. Hope you managed to get some zzzzs.
I love it, Richard. May I add it to the queue on sots, please?
I’m really pleased you like it, Ashley. Yes, of course!
Nice tip Richard!
Beautiful, Richard! Great depth and SO much to look at and read into in a seemingly simple shot! 🙂
Thanks very much, Richard! 🙂
I really love this Richard. Like an abstract concept (down a staircase into sleep and the subconscious) but figurative also and in a way rather ‘elephantine.’
Yes, I like that – great description – thanks very much, Steven!
Excellent! I like that very much!
Thanks very much, Charles! Really glad you like it.
Beautiful color and feeling. tone as I write this at 3:02 am ha ha
Ouch! Did you get to bed soon after? Thanks very much, Carla!
YES. YES. Richard, I also dig, dig, dig it!
Hooray! Thanks so much, T! I’m really glad you do! Trying hard to loosen up my way of working at the moment – it’s difficult, because I’m one uptight fellow.
An uptight fellow? Huh? You walk up to strangers on a regular basis and ask to take their photo! And your recent work is so exciting!
Thanks very much, Ashley! I think I meant kind of stuck in certain ways of thinking – not allowing myself to do certain things – trying to break that down 🙂 …it’s not easy
Seems to me you’ve been doing just that. I really like what you’ve been doing.
That’s really good to hear – thanks, Ashley! 🙂
Really love this Richard….like a thought or idea that keeps returning, somehow, the scribbles just work so well and seem so light, floating in..(frustrated at not being able to describe this better..!!)
Thanks very much, Cath – I love the description! The scribbles are biro and an old marker pen, which ran out of ink part way through.
I literally dug through my paper recycling recently, complete with packing paper and thought about recycling this refuse in a more artistic way. You beat me to it, and did it beautifully!
I’m always looking at that paper and thinking there’s something I can do with it – but this time it just struck me as right the way it was. Thanks very much, Elena!
There is something about brown paper that I love. I like the way it is scrunched and tucked and still in contrast with the zipping lines. Body and mind?
Yes, there’s definitely an element of that division about it. And I also can’t resist – always think there’s something I can do with it :). thanks very much, Karen.
Dig your sculpture Richard!
Ha, thanks very much, Patti!
Thanks very much, Stevie.
This is so good, the twists and tones ans scribbles all working together very tightly.
Thanks very much, Lynn!
