About

Drawing #150s from a portfolio of 33 Drawings, 2016-18, Pen and graphite on paper (unframed), 13 4/5 × 13 4/5 in; 35 × 35 cm by Alan Franklin This original drawing on paper is from a portfolio of 33 drawings by the sculptor and artist, Alan Franklin. Alan is interested in the ideas of repetition and variation and sets up rules, whilst looking with interest at the natural wobbles that occur during the creative process. His drawings look wonderful float-mounted in a plain wood or whitewashed frame, each one a unique thought in Alan’s ongoing practice. Alan Franklin’s drawings and sculptures are a playful exploration of materials and processes, as well as of our perception. Proceeding from a simple strategy and at times the result of laborious repetition, he pursues his interest in chance and the unpredictable. Even with apparent chaos there are rules, factors, and physics, which contribute to the muddled mayhem, but with a minimum of organization the structure of chaos is managed and an aesthetic appears. There is a quiet, meditative appreciation in the subtle variations and irregularities of repeated incidents, gestures and processes all of which he explores, through selections of colour and shape with random compositional strategies. Alan has an MA (Fine Art) from Goldsmiths College (1983) and has since exhibited his work on an international arena from London to Japan. His residencies have taken him all over the world from Iceland, Poland, Morocco to the Grizedale Forest in Cumbria.
