When I started blogging my drawings I was working in small bound books (Moleskines), one drawing a day: bound drawings that somehow maintained a daily narrative, inseparable from their collective physical context. As time went on, the drawings became more complex and more enmeshed in an on-going thought process. They start one day and finish whenever they finish and I work in several sketchbooks at the same time, of various sizes. And the pages are now removable.
I work with internal (anatomy, a continuing fascination) and external (flux of experience and environment). And, over the last 10 years I’ve been experimenting with in-image captions, more and more in Spanish.
(Drawings are pencil, ink, watercolor, whatever on paper: various sketchbooks, going one book to the next. And the pages are now removable. All art copyright Sharon Frost, email@example.com).
...con nuestros amigos Alejandra y Antonio. Ahora estoy dibulando los carapachos. (Two weeks ago we ate spiny sea snails in the Plaza de Mina. Today I'm drawing the shells.) 8 x 12 double page spread; watercolor, ink, whatever, on Stillman & Birn Epsilon.
Hace más de 30 años vi fotografías del siglo 19 (en nuestras colecciones de Grabados y Fotografías, La Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York) de las excavaciones de las ruinas, y luego, más tarde, una exposición de Allan McCollum, de múltiplos de moldes de perro .. Por fin llego a visitar el molde de la propia perro. (More than 30 years ago I saw 19th century photographs (in our collections of Prints & Photographs of The New York Public Library) of the excavations of ruins. Then, much later, I saw the installation of Allan McCullom of multiples of casts of the corpse of the dog. Now, at last, I share space with the actual cast of the dog.) 5 1/2 x 7 in. double page spread; watercolor, ink, whatever, on Moleskine cahier
