Twenty Drawings ; Fish Tree

This drawing is from an old black and white photographic plate showing a fish catch. I am fascinated by the way the fish appear like unreal vegetation and by their flowing outlines. I think that outlines are maps of the unreal, a perceived edge bounding surfaces, that does not actually exist. The manner in which we draw outline gives work character and so is fundamental to the work being a form of expression and not just representation. I plan to do more outline drawings in ink.
