Hull Through the Eyes of a Sculptor

The drawings - 1

The drawings on this page and the next are an exciting insight into the artist's working process. They show how Dobrowolski moved through a process of developing ideas, thinking about what he would like to communicate with his work, rejecting a variety of ideas before coming to a final conclusion.

Notice in drawing 1 (right) how Dobrowolski sketches out his starting points in a simple bullet point list, and uses very quick drawings to illustrate, in this case to the curator, how he has already begun to make, but reject these early ideas. This easily reflects the ‘tinkering’ process.
