Drawing by Tom Sewell

About

"Once, in the British Museum, I saw a drawing of a Chinese scholar's rock: a large craggy stone perforated with holes from a lifetime of erosion in a lake. I’m told these rocks were collected and used as a focus point to ponder nature’s ineffability. I began to make similar drawings, but ones that were entirely imaginary, starting with a blank sheet of paper and seeing where time would take me, what forms would appear. I guess in the end my drawings become a kind of metaphor for the unknowability of things in nature. But they are also about history and time; they refer to standing stones, flint tools and cairns. So they can’t help but be about human attempts to confront their place within nature, to respond to a landscape and to relate to time frames beyond a single life.
