“an end where a beginning had been” is a quote from the novel The Cleft by Doris Lessing. It describes the attempt to navigate a place by following its coastline; looking for the new but aware that you might just end up where you started. The drawing is created from a collection of photographs taken of a contemporary shipwreck. A person’s hopes of travelling the world on a small craft and leaving it all behind is dashed upon the rocks.
Viewers are asked to leave their own hopes, disappointments and wreckages behind by tying their written word into the fabric of the drawing.
