These drawings work as part of a series “Delightful Snippets and Oddities” which was produced during a residency in Portsmouth Art Space. An inquisitiveness into the undue significance into glances of unfamiliar people, along with the idea of a contact being created through the snap-shot are both ideas that inspired this series of drawings. The sense of incompleteness is poignant and disturbing, evoking alternating thoughts. Placing the subject in empty dimensions of the paper can further this thought process, giving the character the potential to move around the boundaries of the paper.
