Carolyn Flood

 

My work is drawing and installation; it can be described as drawing in space.  I want the viewer to ‘enter’ and allow the work to bring to mind their associations and imagines. Additionally, I regularly work in collaborations, which brings the mind and hand of another to the mix.

I draw using traditional materials as well as alternatives, tape, string and wire. Their properties are important - for example transparent materials - as they suggest a vestige of something. I draw onto walls, household objects in addition to paper, whatever assists in evoking the subject.

Often, I use poetry as my subject. For example He Do the Police in Different Voices (2010) was based on T. S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land. Or it can be an issue such as Access (2007), a collaboration with a paraplegic friend and artist, in which we made work for a place he could never access, a crypt below St Pancras Church, Euston, London. Recently, I have been working on a project about my Uncle Jack killed in WW11.
