Drawings by Antony Gormley

It was the two figures in the doorways that caught my eye ... and then more things caught my eye. They are from Antony Gormley Drawing (2002). It's so interesting to see sculptors' drawings ... a tiny hint about how they move from two dimensions into three.

This one is a bit different - I've seen it before and think it's wonderful. The sort of effect you see on a lot of those 18th, or even 17th, century ceilings -
Those little people don't know they're perilously near the edge of a big hole ... hmm, a metaphor for our times?
