Naive and Sentimental

Dermot Foley

The naive is in the act of drawing. The sentimental is in the recognition of the cultural context of the form that is being drawn. These two ways of being are inter-mixed. The drawing gets underway with a tremendous sense of optimism, every time, for every project. The drawing is done in a kind of oscillating consciousness where the reasons for the drawing and the cultural context comes in and out of focus. This is the third PRS. A further understanding of types of practitioners is explored, using an analysis of past work and an ongoing demonstration project which seeks a more direct link between drawing and building.
