On walking around the gallery, I came across a Victor Passmore drawing on a gesso board. There seemed for me a strange correlation between work that I have done in the past and works done more recently in ceramics. Strangely, the painting studio I did my BA in was called the Victor Passmore building, having been opened by him on the Yorkshire sculpture park site. There were similarities in the motifs and shapes used in the drawn work, which I had been producing for some time. there are , for me at least allusions to a vertical landscape. I feel this may help me open up pathways for drawings in the clay boards I had prepared.
