Henry Collins
Drawings

Whilst dealing with some mental health issues I made over 600 drawings and portraits with with my eyes shut or with a blindfold on in. Although I’d artistically ignored using pen and paper for a longtime. I found drawing relaxing and i find not being able to see while i do it, a benefit rather than a hindrance. It enables me be happy with my drawings, Something I wasn’t when i used my eyes to guide me. On reflection this relates to my rummage practice, in the way that i am way more attracted to the results of dissociation.

“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist”

Oscar Wilde.
