Flicking Glass Snails

Rob Churm
Artists' Books
14 × 20 cm

Flicking Glass Snails is a new publication, edited from drawings made by Rob Churm in the summer of 2012. The drawings are often improvisations but can be informed by notes and preparations made in sketchbooks. Limiting himself to the discipline of drawing offers Churm a position from which he is able to explore a whole kaleidoscope of images, a great collective set of sources. Keeping the materials simple Churm enjoys playing with the types of marks that can be made, using repetition of motifs and pattern, layering them to create depth. There’s lots to think about in there too, as well as lots to look at. The work is fertile and colourful in a different way.
